    I brought a new laptop with no OS so I did a fresh install of Windows XP.

    There is no wireless network connection icon on the toolbar to see list of avalible networks... how can I add it?

    Ensure All of the Network drivers are installed on your laptop. if you don't install the drivers do it first.

    Check the Wireless Network driver is installed or not
    Install your chipset drivers first, then install th video, audio, etc. with the installation of the chipset drivers most issues will get ironed out.


    Right Click on My Computer -- > Manage --> Click the Device Manager on the Left Pane --> On the right pane displays list devices installed on your laptop -- > if any yellow question marks there with the words Network adapters.......

    Install the Driver ...:)
