Intel® PROSet/Wireless Tools is considered a Control Panel Applet, thus it needs to be launched once via the Control Panel for its link to show up in Network and Sharing Center.
Going to the Control Panel Home once will make the link available in Network and Sharing Center.
When the tool is opened once via the Control Panel, it'll be cached. The user will then see the link in the Network and Sharing Center on all subsequent attempts.
