I write this based on the assumption that you're using Windows XP.  If you're not, then you'll never see the "wireless network" tab in the properties of the NIC.....use a third party connection utility such as Boingo.

Ensure you have no third party wireless connection utilities installed.  They can cause this issue.  If you just uninstalled connection software it may not have uninstalled correctly.  This issue is common with the D-Link wireless connection utility.  Typically, the easiest way to work around this is to reinstall the software and uninstall it using add/remove plus  --> http://www.innovatools.com/

If this doesn't work, reinstall the drivers for your wireless NIC using the most udated ones from the manufacturer.

Uninstall the 3rd party utility on the PC you're having issues with.  Use Add/Remove plus to do so.  If this still doesn't let the Wireless Tab appear on the properties for the wireless card, install the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website.  No computer is exactly the same as another.
