Windows 7: No wireless icon connection ?

Well this was one thing I was a bit worried about as I am not sure your wireless is actually working. What type of wireless card or connection are you using?

Go and look in your device manager at network adapters and see what you have

Is this a laptop or desktop as I don't see much reference to this supporting wireless at all?

On the right side of the taskbar, you should see a wireless network icon like the one below. Click on it.



Once you click on this you should see a window like this and then you just select the network you want to connect to

Maybe it's just me but I don't see a wireless network adaptor installed on this machine?

LOL, ok I thought I was really missing something here but I guess not.

I believe the Op needs to install a wireless network adaptor "USB or PCI" into this machine in order to connect wirelessly.

I don't see one either and it is not showing up through Network Sharing Center either. I think the OP does not have a wireless adapter installed.

Chev, I thank you and DirtRider for picking this up.
