You mean the wireless (WLAN) icon? It happens sometimes. Reboot the computer and it should work ok.
#2
is it a new laptop? might need a driver for your wireless if it is.

nope its still not coming up, when i switch on the ineternet button its as if the icon is trying to appear and then it doesnt?
#11
Click on Start then hover over Connect to and click on Show all connections.
When the window appears look for the Wireless Connection icon, right click on it and choose enable.
If it is not there, then it looks like Wireless has been switched off.
#12
Is the wifi light on? Its below the keyboard if not try the switch.
#13
yep the lights come on but still no icon

This is likely to be the problem. My Netbook uses the FN and one of the F keys to switch the wireless on / off.

OK. This is something I have tried and it worked for me. Do a System Restore. Are you using XP or Vista?
