    Hello everyone, I have a big problem.
    On my desktop computer, the wireless network icon does NOT appear in the bottom right hand corner, it also does not appear when I go to: control panel --->network connections

    there is still no wireless network icon...

    i have a d-link modem, i'm trying to get a wireless connection of my internet but I can't because there is no 'wireless connection icon', anywhere in the computer..

    you know when you right click the wireless network thingie, then click on 'VIEW WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS' that icon is no where to be found..

    i already right clicked on my computer then properties and checked in hardware under network connections, and the network things are all installed... i'm not sure whats going on with this computer...

    anyone, PLEASE help me?

    PS- modem is D-LINK [WBR-1310]

    Let's see if it's detected, which it doesn't appear to be from what you said.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    Type the following commands:


    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.
