You can do this the long way to connect to a network and get your icon back hopefully.

Go into my computer, click control panel (switch to classic view), then go to network connections, from there Right click on your wireless connection, and select properties. Once in there, unclick and reclick (or just click) both the tick boxes for displaying wireless info. Then press ok and cross your fingers :P (it might need to be rebooted)

If you can't connect still or see the icon, the workaround is going back into that network connections, and just selecting (or single clicking) the wireless connection. There should be a menu on the left side of the window that expands and allows you to select view wireless networks. If your wifi card is on, which it seems to be from your post, then you should be able to connect this way just as well.

If all does not work, always use system restore, go back to a point where you didn't have this problem, it's a lifesaver for driver issues believe me :P.
Click run, type in msconfig , and then select the system restore button and follow the onscreen prompts. Select a date when the issue wasn't happening.

Hope this helps, stay spicy and happy lappying!

I have a similar problem when connecting to a new network with my laptop sometimes.
I would try two things:
-Restart your netbook and see if it will connect, sometimes that's all it needs
-"Reset" your wireless router. This does NOT mean hit the reset button to get rid of all settings, instead, just unplug it for ten seconds and plug it back in.
