'Manage wireless networks' Does Not Show Up in Network and Sharing Center

I'm using a Dell Latitude i7 E6320 64-bit Win7 laptop. When I go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center, 'Manage wireless networks' does NOT show up. I only see 'Change adapter settings' and 'Change advanced sharing settings'. Does anyone know what may be causing this?

I can still connect to wifi's, though.

You could try uninstalling the network card driver (device manager); restart; and let windows reinstall the wireless card.

Make sure WLAN Autoconfig service is started and set automatic.
