In Ubuntu 10.04, my network-manager icon is gone missing by itself. I use the GNOME desktop.

How can I restore it?

"If you remove the notification area on the panel (right click the three vertical dots and click "Remove From Panel") and then re-add it ( right click the panel, click "Add to Panel" and search for "Notification Area", then click it) the Network Manager icon will reappear, thus allowing you to connect to wireless networks."
