Dial-up Icon missing from System Tray

  tallboy 20:45 17 Feb 04

I use the ISP glowinternet for my dial-up internet connection. Following an obligatory upgrade to their connection settings last weekend, I no longer get a connection icon in the system tray when I connect to their network.

I can disconnect by using the drop-down menu on the on-screen short cut, but it would be easier if I can get the system tray icon back again.

Does anyone know how to do this? The option of having it doesn't appear on any of the set-up tabs.

Hi, Go to Start/ Programs/ Accessories/ Communications/ Click "Dial-up-Network".
Right click your ISP, select Properties, select CONFIGURE for Modem, Options tab and put a tick in the box for Display Modem Status.
That should put your little TVs back in the Sys tray.

Even simpler, go into control panel select Network Connection, Right Click your ISP network and select properties - you shoul see a check box which says "Show icon in notificatio area when connected" tick the box and you're sorted
