I'm helping a friend with a Dell Computer running Windows XP home. For some reason it is not showing the two small monitor icons in the tray that show I am connected to the internet. I had this problem several years back but can't seem to remember how to fix it. I keep thinking that there is a box to check in control panel to show the network connection.

If somebody could help I sure would appreciate it. I've looked in Google but haven't found the anser.

Many Thanks for any and all assistance.

Thanks for responding. I followed the link you gave me and it looks like that should have fixed my problem so that I could have a tray notifiction of network connection.

After going through the steps, I still had no success. I followed the suggestion to go into the registry and I followed down the tree but could not find a branch for the tray icon and to reset.

I guess I can live without it as it does work. I just thought it would help to know if the computer is online.

Any more suggestions? Thanks
