  1. today i switched on my laptop and noticed that the wireless icon in the taskbar has disappeared. Although i can connect to the internet.

    I have tried opening up taskbar properties to see if i can switch it on from there but the icon is not in any of the options.

    the wireless netwok card i have got is Intel (r) pro/ wireless 3945AB

    My OS is windows xp

    Hi

    Chances are windows is managing the wireless and as such the icon wont be shown (they are usually shown if the wireless's own software is managing the connection.) i wouldnt worry as there is no need to do anything with it as long as the wifi is working
