I'm not quite understanding your issue. Without details, there are so many possible solutions.
So, since I'm not actually speaking to you, I'll ask some questions and give some possible suggestions, directions or something you can search (if you don't know how or where something is located on your computer). It's a good start.
This is off the top of my head. Hopefully, others will respond and add to this.
First, is your wireless connection on your laptop the kind that you can physically, lightly touch to enable/disable or is it a button you switch over?
If it's a button, slide it to turn it off then back on to see if that will make it show up.
A guy at my job lost his wireless connection out of the blue and brought it to me to fix. One of his fingers on his left hand accidentally touched the wireless enabler/disabler feature above the Function keys, turning it off. And it didn't show up to reconfigure on the operating system, until it was physically enabled on the laptop first. Some HPs are like this, and some have a button you slide over.
Rebooting does help - sometimes. Not rebooting for a year, unless hardly a thing is running, would be fine in some cases. But sometimes, programs conflict, things run in the background making processes hang up or run slow (making the computer appear to hang or run slow), too many processes or applications can run at once and slow things down, files get fragmented, virtual memory may need adjusting (which doesn't take effect until after a reboot), hard drive space may be low, not a fast enough process for whatever it is new that you're trying to do. There are so many factors, including brand and model and operating system that can impact the way your computer runs.
But maybe you just need to go back to your Network properties and reenable your connection and set it to show up in your system tray?
Are you receiving any error messages/codes when you try to connect wirelssly? If so, you can always search them on the Internet.
Have you checked the Event Viewer?
Make sure your wireless router is not having issues. Can any other computer connect wirelessly? Have you made changes to your router during this past year, i.e., SSID, password, encryption, etc. and forgot to make the change on your laptop?
Are you able to physically connect your laptop or any other computer through the router? If not, can you physically connect to the Internet if you bypass the router and connect directly to your cable modem/DSL? If you can, then it's a problem with your router.
What type of router do you have? B, G, N?
How far is your router from your laptop? Is a microwave or refrigerator near your laptop? Sometimes, these will cause a signal to not get to your computer. And in that case, you would either need to get a range booster or a better router.
I have a cable modem and had a wireless-n router. But its signal is only as strong as the router. So, I couldn't always connect wirelessly when I had my laptop on my living room coffee table, even though my wireless router was sitting on the floor directly above my head. I eventually got a wireless-n gigabit router. Now, I can be anywhere downstairs and connect anything wirelessly, including my Wii.
Do you have an external wireless adapter that you are using or is it an internal wireless card?
Are you using Windows to configure your wireless connection or some other application?
Have you tried running Windows Update? You don't need every single update that Microsoft has. Just pick what is appropriate for your computer. Installing a Windows Update will also force you to reboot afterward.
