RE: Broadband Connection not shown in systray Network icon
Thanks Mary. I think I am missing something. My broadband connection is not
always active. I have to manually connect whenever I want to go on-line.
When I am done surfing the web, I disconnect. Only my local area connection
is active all the time. This is exactly the same way things worked under XP.
I should probably note that I don't currently use a router. When I had my
network set up using a router, my broadband connection was active all the
time. Without the router, it only connects when I tell it to.
