One yellow star?

You've lost me now, because I never see any stars when using a wireless network!

At what point are you switching the adapter on via its keyboard/fascia button?

How long has the router been switched on for at this point?

In the meantime, flush the wireless client's DNS by opening a command prompt (Run > cmd) and entering ipconfig /flushdns.

I think you need to give some more details about the hardware you are using and how it is set up. What you should have is a Wireless Cable/DSL Router connected to the Telewest Cable Modem by ethernet cable and all computers connecting to the router, either "wirelessly" or by ethernet cable. However, before you do anything else, you need to configure the router to connect to Telewest and then configure its Wireless settings; this is done by connecting a PC to it by ethernet cable and entering its IP address into a web browser. The IP address will depend on the router, for example:
