Calibre only sends the series information to the device the second time it is connected, so after sending the books from Calibre you need to eject the device, let it process the books, then plug it back in again to get the series information.
Also I think your Kobos need firmware 2.2.x just to see the series information, and firmware 2.3.x to do anything useful with it.
Edit: Also check that the "set series information" box is ticked in the Kobo device plugin's customisation menu. (Calibre-->preferences-->plugins-->device interface pluguns-->Kobo Touch-->customisation)
