lost network icon in navigation bar

  Newuser3477 16:13 31 Dec 2007

I seem to have lost the useful wireless connectivity networking icon that confirmed signal strength level and speed of connectivity in the navigation bar at the bottom of the right hand side.It probably disappeared when I connected/disconnected an ethernet cable to my laptop without switching off computer. I still have the LAN icon telling me a network cable has been disconnected. I have been told that I cannot have 2 network icons in this area but I am sure I did when I first had this laptop 4 weeeks ago. Anyway i don't need the LAN icon but I do want the wireles connectivity info

Start-Setting-Network Connections-Right Click Wireless Connection-Properties

Tick “Show Icon In Notification Area when Connected”

Thanks for your help. I have made a mistake because I thought I was in the Vista forum area, so I was not able to follow your advice . I could not find settings after clicking on the start button nor did typing in settings in the searc box help. I did however find a wireless Connection Properties dialogue box but there was no option to tick " show icon in notification arae when connected".
Any chance of some more help ?

In Vista Click anywhere on Task bar, Select Properties, Notification Area, put a tick in Network.
