Why ni WIFI signal?

I have a Netgear DG834 router/modem that works perfectly well at home.

I have bought the router to my parent's for Christmas and assumed I could use that to access the Internet via their ISP by just plugging it in to the phone line, picking up the WIFI signal on my Powerbook via Airport, then changing the account details to those of my parents ISP (they have a broadband DSL account also).

However, Airport is not listing the router, so presumably it is not broadcasting a signal(??), and I cannot connect to it manually via the 'Other' manual set-up option in Internet Connect. The 'i' symbol on the router is lit up so I know it is connected to the Internet OK.

I haven't bought a network cable with me so can't hard-wire into it to access the admin interface.

Any ideas? Am I being stupid?

Many thanks in advance for any help.
