    Default No WiFi network taskbar icon

    I just installed a Netgear WNDR3700v1 router. I know it is broadcasting a WiFi network because my cellphone finds it as available. My question is about what I should be seeing on my Windows 10 PC. I have no desktop taskbar icon and it is not listed in my available networks. I have 2 VPNs, one active, one nonactive, but both are shown as available. All my LAN devices are ethernet connected, but shouldn't I see the availability on this WiFi network and have the option of having it ON or OFF? I can find no indication of it in any of my Settings screens...but my cellphone sees it and connects automatically. Can someone offer this non-techie some explanation and/or fix, please?

    Check if the network or wireless icon is hidden.
    Step 1: Click the small up arrow icon on the taskbar to view hidden icons.
    Step 2: If the network or wireless icon is appearing there, simply drag and drop it to the taskbar area.
