The position at the moment is old router plugged in so that I can
communicate. I have other computers in the house which connect to the
router by wireless. I have powered up the new router but have connected
nothing else to it. I am able to find the new router from another
computer and, if I enter the WEP key, I am able to find the set up web
page via Firefox. 

As long as I can remember, the icon to which you refer, has never
appeared to be active on the PC to which the Ethernet cable is
connected. Should it?
