i am having this very same issue with my desktop pc right now.
i have had a linksys compact wireless-g usb adapter connected and working
fine for about 3 or 4 months now. all of a sudden the other day i my
wireless network connection icon has disappeared. i have just spent the last
3 hours reading other forumns but no one seems to understand the problem.
the wireless device shows up in the device manager and appears to be working
fine. i can connect to the wireless internet fine. but since that wireless
connection icon is missing i can not manage the wireless connection. i have
followed the steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/825826/en-us and they
did not change anything...the icon is still missing.

i am not saying it isnt appearing in the tasbar so do not tell me to goto
the wirless connection and right click prperties and check the show icon in
notification area when connected. also i have reinstalled the drivers and
hardware about 10 times now so do not tell me to goto device manager and
check that it is working...i have done this after every reinstall and
everytime it says it is there and working.
