Before I set up my broadband there was always a little Monitor icon in the Tray the screen of which changed colour when things were happening. Is it possible to restore this feature please?

Control Panel, Network connections. Right click the connection, Properties, tick "Show icon in notification area when connected.

Thanks VoG, but I tried that.
We now have two computers networked through a Linksys gateway to the net. There is also a (functioning) wireless link to the gateway, (which will be used for my laptop due for delivery any day now).
So when we click through to Connections Properties its all a bit different from what we had previously with dialup!
That was as you describe. Any other ideas please?
