Windows 7: Windows 7 Wireless Network

Windows 7 Wireless Network


Two problems.

1. Wireless internet sharing connection seems to have stopped working overnight. Cannot see why. Using a host laptop with wired connection to a ADSL modem. Other laptops connected wirelessly. Can someone advise on correct settings etc so I can check my set up?

Currently ADSL internet connection set to shared with home wireless connection which seems correct.

And related
2. Have a wireless network which does not show in the control panel listing but still apears in the Windows 7 pop-up connection box?

Any thoughts
