Should I have something in the bottom righthand corner
Only if you want to - a little icon of two monitors
if tool tips are enabled aswell then hover over the icon to show "local area connection speed 100mbs status connected"
to get the icon Start - settings -Network connection- highlight Local area connection - properties -general tab - tick box show icon in notification area.
you can do the same for your wireless connection if using wireless instead of the "red cable".
Unforunately this doesn't show the speed of your connection like the speedtouch, it show the speed from networcard to livebox, your linespeed will be dependant on many factors - distance from exchange numer of users on exchange etc.
