I have just finishing upgrading to 8Mbs BT Broadband - the experience was enhanced by a very intuitive visual & spoken instruction CD.
I previously had the 2 screen flashing icon indicating I was on line and showing the download speed - this has disappeared since the installation. Anyone tell me how to get it back - I know that the download fluctuates a little during the first few days. Thank you
ade.h thanks for your prompt reply I have noticed how you answer a lot of problems on a regular basis. I opened Network Connections & have two options 1394 Connection + Local Area Connection. I right clicked on the LNC one & as you know there was a box to tick 'show icon in notification area when connected' OK so I ticked & the two screen flashing icon appeared but the properties showed Speed 100mbs which confused me somewhat (I'm an enthusiastic 75 year old) I assume this is not the one I require. My connection is an ethernet one there are no wireless implications until we purchase a laptop. I'm afraid I was not able to identify anything by right clicking properties on the taskbar.
If you have any further clarification I would appreciate it. Thanks
Yes, you're right; there's no disconnect option as such. I use the disable option on any desktop or laptop on which the Ethernet port os not being used. Then if I need to use it, it takes just a few seconds for it to be enabled again.
