Hi and welcome to the Forum
Is the Broadband connection working OK?
Where are you looking for the icon? Can you post a screenshot of the location where you expect to see the LAN icon?

Have you got a LAN socket on the laptop? If you completed your system spes that would be helpful. What is the Model and number of you Dell laptop and did it come wih Windows 7 Ultimate pre installed?

So it seems that the LAN is not being recognised. It may be you have a corrupt copy of Win 7 Ultimate. Where did your copy come from?

Owww , I suppose It Could be Possible. Its Downloaded from unknown Source. Do you Suggest installing a different copy?

Then I guess the Licence key for the Ultimate version arrived via the same uknown source. If that is so then on your confirmation of this i will post details of how to do a complete clean install of your copy of Windows 7! Let me know!
