Question Network icon not visible in Ubuntu 12.04


When I tried to configure a broadband connection in my Ubuntu 12.04 somehow the network icon has been removed from the system panel. I tried many kinds of solutions but still it is not visible. Now I am unable to add new connections.

How can I get the icon back?

Code:
root@admin:~# ifconfig -a

have you bump to this link:

https://help.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-help/net-nonm.html

And have you updated your system?
