Wireless strength icon
I was wondering if there is supposed to be a wireless strength icon in the
notification area. I think there was one in Win Xp, but im not sure. If there
is something wrong with my setup. i have a Toshiba A105-S2231 Laptop, with a
1.6GHz Celeron M Processor and 1 gig ram. The connecting works and i can
click on the standard network icon to see the strength, but it would be nice
just to look in the toolbar.

Thanks Much!!

Re: Wireless strength icon
no, you have to go deeper into the network and sharing center. right
click the icon and then Network and Sharing Center.

there are some sidebar gadgets that might interest you

Re: Wireless strength icon
I found a nice one that sits in the sidebar. Shows signal strength as a
percentage.
