When i open up network connections from the Control Pannel there is nothing showing at all.
I thought i might have at least my Broadband Con showing. (popali)

I use this click here - it gives you an icon in the task bar which flashes green for up and down activity. Can also check daily/monthly download amounts.

May i ask do you connect through a Modem or Router...even so though it seems strange to me that nothing shows in metwork connections.

If you have Zone Alarm, network usage will show in bottom r/h of screen.
Ctrl+Alt+Del will give you the task mgr. look under "networking"

Good Luck
