    You can get it back by doing this:

    Start, Connect to, Show all Connections,
    Now Right-Click on your preferred connection,
    Select Properties at the bottom of the list
    Now in the General tab, there should be a check box at the bottom to "Show
    Icon in notification area when connected"
    Click Ok

    You should now have the icon you want.

    Follow the above procedure for all connections you are likely to use.

    Are you posting from the same host to prove that you do have network
    connectivity as evidenced by your post here?

    In the Network applet in Control Panel, right-click on the connectoid,
    select Properties, and enable the "Show icon in notification area when
    connected" option. Of course, if you configured the Windows taskbar to hide
    inactive icons in its system notification area (aka system tray), you'll
    need to ensure the network icon is set to "Always show" to prevent it
    getting hidden (which would then require clicking on the chevron at the left
    end of the tray area to expand and see the hidden icons).
