Internet Connection taskbar icon lost!

  Brazils 23:56 25 Sep 2004

I have broadband via arouter, and in my Network Connections folder I had an Internet Connection icon under the Internet Gateway heading.

I right clicked on my internet taskbar icon and the status window came up. I clicked on disable. Dont ask why!

Now I lost the taskbar icon and the icon in the Internet Gateway (and the Internet Gateway heading). I have tried many ways to get this back (ie enable), and in end resorted to System Restore.

I never lost my internet connection throughout all this.

How do you enable this after its been disabled without a Restore? Just in case I do it again!

Control Panel, Network Connectios, right click the connection, select Properties.

Tick "Show icon in notification area when connected".

The point is I lost the Internet Gateway Connection icon in Network Connections so I couldn't do this.
