connections the only one shown is my Loacal area Connections. How do I
install the wireless network Icon?

Do you have wireless hardware? If you have a laptop, is the wireless
enabled? Most modern laptops have a way to enable/disable the wireless
connection via a button or switch on the laptop case. If this is your
situation, is the button on?

1. Does Device Manager show the wireless nic installed?
2. Does the wireless nic come with its own connectivity management
software?
3. What operating system are you running? If you are running XP, is
Windows Wireless Zero Configuration service running? If not, turn it
on.

There is no wireless network icon on any of my wireless nodes that are using
windows built in wireless networking, only the local area connection is
listed on the top level network connections menu so your results sound
normal. Open the local area connection. Right click it, select properties,
on next menu select configure for your wireless card. After that you'll see
a wireless network tab. Take it from there.
