Lost the icon for dial up connection on my taskbar???

Post by Newbi » Mon, 01 Dec 2003 04:36:15


Hello, I've lost the icon on the lower right portion of
the taskbar that shows my dial up connection. It does
not reappear after rebooting the pc either. When I click
the corresponding icon on the desktop, it appears and
lets me dial up my ISP, but I don't see the icon to be
able to tell connect speed, or have a way to log off the
ISP. The desktop icon will show Connect as available and
the status is not available. I can attempt to redial
from the desktop icon, but nothing happens when I try
redialing, no sound or error message. Help is
appreciated thanks!

Try the following to be sure things are set up as wanted..
-Unlock the Taskbar with a right-click in a blank area on it.
-Right-click a blank area again, but this time, select Properties
-In the resulting dialog box, click on "Customize in lower-right.
-In next dialog box, what is to the right of the connection icon (two
monitors) ? If not "Always show", click on it or the connections name to
highlight and get a box around the status with an inverted triangle to the
right.
-Click on triangle, then click on "Always show"
-OK, Apply, and OK to close
-Lock the Taskbar with another right-click in blank area.

This should have the Dial up icon always available by the clock. If it
isn't, I defer to the more expert.
