    statbar? nah i dont feel like having another program installed i just want the normal little blinking monitors.....anyone else know how to make it automatically show up on every connections??
  4. Go to control panel > network connections> right click on you're modem or Dial Up connection, then check the following 'Show icon in notification area when connected'. This also works for lan connections, just right click ur nic card from ctrl panel and check that option.

    do you log in as Administrator ?

    Maybe the problem you encounter has to do with user profile or restictions attached to it...

    I for myself don't have this prob., "the normal little blinking monitors" always appear when I connect to the Net !

    i know, windows xp forgets for some reason, for example the quick lauch toolbar wouldnt load and with outlook, i had to check remember my username and password everytime i ran outlook. I dont know why but for some reason now it actually does remeber everything i do. Just go to windows update and get all the updates.

    i don't think win xp forgets i think win xp has more support on high speed internet. I reinstalled xp several times and still wouldnt show the blinking lights
