No internet connection icon

No toolbar icon lately to enable breaking internet connection. This whilst 'Network Connections' in 'Control Panel' says dial-up is disconnected (whilst actually connected). Anyone any ideas please? Could it be something like a switch got reversed in registry? I'm on dial-up using XP. Thanks.

Sorry if this sounds obvious but have you got the "show icon in notification area" box ticked in
Control Panel/Network Connections/Properties

But yes I have... or at least I have in Internet Options/Internet Properties/Connections/settings/ properties, which is probably the same thing.
