I cleaned out my laptop and did a fresh windows xp install. Now I'm missing the little icon in the lower right tray that lets you connect to a wireless network. I tried locating it in the control panel under network locations but had no luck. Do I need to install some kind of xp wireless component or something? How can I get this icon again.

(see attached picture of icon that I'm missing)
