Control panel
internet and network connections
network connections
right click the wireless connection and select properties
Check at the bottom to be sure the show wireless icon command is checked.
You may while you're in that window have to set up for your home wireless system.

Have you tried to make a new wireless connection? Should be able to select that from the left hand menus.

Has anyone been messing with your pc while you have been away? Ask what they have been doing with it. Does the wireless show up in device manager?

Welll thats your problem.
If its not in device manager then windows doesnt know you have a wireless NIC, thus no icon.

Is the wireless nic a PCI card? Is the a Desktop or laptop?

If its a card then it probably needs reseated, thats why you cant see it in device manager, and thats why you cant access it. Basically, its not connected.
