Go to Preferences>Network then click on W-iFi check that "Show Wi-FI in menu bar" is ticked.

My apologies I didn't notice this was a iPad question.
Hope someone else can help you with this.

First thing to try is restart it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Is it safe to assume you're actually connected to a wi-fi router? I know you said your internet was working - but that could be via cell data - assuming you have that. Can you take a snapshot of your screen and post? I've never heard of an IOS icon disappearing like that. You could try the hard reset.
