wifi icon missing from taskbar

Hi,
Can anyone tell me how to restore the wifi icon in the taskbar? I have
vista home premium on an HP laptop. It was there this morning, and now,
when i turned it on, its gone.
I right clicked on the taskbar, then left clicked on properties, found the
notification area, and the network square is grayed out so I can't put a
check in it. I think that is what would put the icon back next to the
battery icon.
TIA

Thanks for the suggestion, but a restart didn't fix it. It gave me an idea,
though: restore point.
There had been a vista update on the 1st so I restored to 2 days before the
update.
I don't know if the update caused the problem or not, but the restore fixed
it.
Thanks,
Al

Do you people have some kind of fixation with registry tweak or high-tech
geek ?
What's wrong with doing a system restore, picking the date the icon was
present ?
