Hi,
I have the following problem:
I connect to internet through wireless. The wireless icon does not change it is always in the not connected status (the small computer with a red X). When I connect, I check the view available wireless networks page and shows my connection with the status:(not connected), I check IE and I can browse normally.

That's interesting... When did you notice this happening?

I have had similar problems, but it might help to reset your wireless router, I don't know why, but every now and again, my router acts up, and reseting it or turning it off takes care of the problem.

Also, have you tried configuring a static ip, and connecting that way, or perhaps making sure wireless zero configuration is enabled in services.msc, instead of the potentially annoying software some wireless cards come with?
