Control Panel > Network connections > Right click on yor dial up connection and then put a tick in the box for show icon in notification area when connected. A.

Try control panel-network connections. Right click the icon that connects to the Internet and under the general tab, make sure a tick is in show icon in notification area when connected.

This should do the Internet one.

Is the other for a network?

AubreyS + ©®@$ђ. Faster on the buttons :)

Do the same through network connections for

LAN

Firewire

Bluetooth

They will then stick icons in the notification area. If you want them.

In XP ,you can also 'disconnect' by clicking : start/connect to/ then rt.click the internet connection you are using - a 'disconnect' option will be shown amongst others.
