New windows 7 install , no wifi detected on laptop.

Hello , I just installed windows 7 ultimate x 64. I have a problem with wifi connection.
When I open Control Panel \ Hardware and Sound I see a yellow icon above the laptop icon.( I don t know if I m making any sense but I try to explain every little thing that might have some influence.
I have a HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 430 @ 2.27GHz,2267Mhz, 2 Core(s) .
If you could help me it would be much appreciated .
