Hi all,
l have three computers networked at home, 2 running WinXP home and 1 running WinXP Pro.
All three can 'see' each other and connect tto the internet no problem.
Computers B and C connect to the Internet via computer A.
My problem is, l cannot check the network status( whether its connected or not) of computer C because there is no icon in Network connections, and hence not able to view properties and place icon in the taskbar.
There is a local area connection icon, but nothing else. Computer B has an icon to show it is connected to the net Via Computer A.
Any ideas???
Hope i've explained this ok :thumbsup:
Geoff

Hi,
sorry if l did not explain myself properly.
I can do all you suggested for the local area connection. To show this particular computer is connected to the LAN.
What l cannot do is show that this computer is connected to the Internet via my gateway computer.
Nothing is showing in Network connections.

Thanks
Geoff
