Thanks for your response braden85!
Unfortunately, I've had already tried these troubleshootings in Apple's Support articles but still no luck about the icon appearing on Mountain Lion, It's been 2 days that I have been trying to solve this issue but i just can not. I really think that It is about router, but still how could it work so fine with iPad if its about router?
I'm so dissappointed that I am the only one having this issue.

How does the AppleTV connect to the internet? wired or WiFi?
The MBA has to also connect to the internet the same way; and if WiFi, to the same wireless router, if you have more than one.
Do you have an iPhone? The same rule applies.
Airplay is plenty nifty! I always amaze my friends with it...

I tried both, wired and WiFi, they both don't work.
The only thing I didn't try is to connect MBA and Apple TV to the router with ethernet using an USB to Ethernet converter, but even it works like that, it becomes useless because of the fact that it wouldnt amaze anyone anymore.

I have just realized one more thing. When Apple TV is connected WIRED with ethernet cable to the router, then it works with iPad,iPhone or any iOS device. When Apple TV is connected via WiFi it doesn't work with AirPlay at all. So now after this big clue, what do you guys think about the reason?

Not all models of the MacBook Air support Airplay. I use Air Parrot with my MacBook Pro and Mac Mini.
Please be a specific with your answers as possible:
Were both the MBA and AppleTV connected to the SAME router?
Were both the MBA and AppleTV connected to the same WiFi router?
I do not have an MBA; it does not have ethernet? You must use a USB to ethernet adapter? Which manufacture and model is it? Have you tried another one?

BINGO! I am finally writing this from my 50" LCD TV with AirPlay Mirroring with my MBA. The problem was about router. I just borrowed my friend's router and tried it with that. I guess AirPlaying with iOS devices and with ML is totally different. Whatever, I understood one more time the fact that to use Apple's techonologies, your all devices should be Apple instead of some old router. Thanks anyways

Hi again halid331!
If your router is the issue, then you may want to take a look at this article:
These settings should help you resolve any issue you were seeing with your router preventing you from Airplay Mirroring. Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities!
