Windows XP WiFi question

Going crazy over this one...
Where have microsoft hidden the channel numbers, I'm trying to configure a router to a free channel and I can't see which ones are in use.

That worked great, thanks.
Incidentally it looks like the "BT homehub" I'm setting up for my boss reports everything as channel 1
