Under XP there were two blinking monitors at the bottom left of the screen telling you instantly your connection speed. How do I get the same under Vista? I am on BT Internet.

It's a similar 2 monitors, except no blinking but a globe comes up over them to tell you you're connected.

Oops sorry, misread your question. Hopefully someone else will be able to give you an answer.

The "two blinking monitors" do NOT tell you your connection speed. They only tell you the maximum speed available on your line.

And the monitors are on the right not left. But speed in each case is not related to operating System. If you want a speed test go click here
