i managed to fix the problem...seems the new driver doesnt have that icon. i reinstalled the old one and problem solved
well i recently updated my driver for my wireless adapter...a motorola wpci810g i think. well anyways...it still works...but only problem is when i startup, one of the old icons are missing. the wireless one. the one with the antennae thingy...but the other one with the square thing and the 3 ))) is still there.
well i was just wondering how u get the antannae one back as i sometimes use that when i am having connection problems to disable the adapter then reenable it.
much thanks for any replies.
