Broadband connection icon does not remain in icon tray when connec

OS = XP-SP2 - The only time I see the broadband (network) connection icon in
the icon tray is when a cable is unplugged. It does appear most of the time
when connecting, but then disappears from the tray once connected. It was but
is not now in the Taskbar and Start Menu - Past Item. When it was there, I
had it checked to 'Always Show', but it didn't. Any suggestions? (If this is
not in the right posting area, please direct me to the right one.)

Hi Marty -

Right click on the "My Network Places" icon on the desktop and choose
Properties. Then right click on your network connection and Properties. At
the bottom of that window should be an option to "show icon in taskbar when
connected" and place a checkmark in there and click on OK. That should do
it.

Two possibilities...


1) Start -> Control Panel -> Network and Internet Connections -> Network
Connections

then right click on "Local Area Network Connection" and select properties.
Tick box marked "Show icon in notification area when connected".

2) right click on task bar and select "Properties" then remove the tick from
"Hide inactive icons"

Such a simple thing, but I suppose easy to miss, at least for an old man who
has a history of being non-observant. Thank you very much, "Newtechie".
