Hello andrewsexton and welcome to Geeks to Go, :tazz:

I need a little additional information to ascertain whether or not I will be able to assist you, in correcting your problem.

Please Answer the following questions:

1) What operating System's do you have on the PC's in question, Please include any Windows Updates or Patches (Example... XP SP1 or 2)?

2) Are you trying to connect via the Wired or Wireless Option?

3) What is the Model and Manufacturer of the Wireless Adapter or Network Card currently Installed on your problematic PC?

4) What is the Model and Manufacturer of the Router you are using?

5) If trying to Connect Wirelessly, are you using the software that came with your wireless adapter to manage your connectivity to the router, or if using XP are you using the Wireless Zero Configuration (referred to as WZC)?

6) What IP Configuration are you using (Example.. DHCP, PPoE / Static, Automatic)

7) You made the statement "The net works fine but i cannot see my network connection" and I need clarification on this. Does this mean both PC's are connecting to the internet Fine or that Both PC's are able to file share, or that you just cant see your connection icon in the start bar and also in the control panel network connections. Please clarify what your exact problem is?

8) What troubleshooting steps have you taken already?
