1.) To get the monitors back, do this.
Click Start, Settings, Network connections. Right click the Local Area Connection, click Properties. On the first window that pops up, put a check in the box marked "Show icon in notification area. . ."
2.) Unplug either the modem or router.
Just installed router for added firewall. (only one computer) Using win xp home.
I was able to delete the SBC icon I used to get online, just have to click on Mozilla or MSIE icon to go online.
However I no longer have the twin monitor ICON at bottom right of screen that indicated I was online.
1. CAN I get the twin monitors back to show when I am online?
I do not like to be online if I am not actively surfing the net, so...
2. How do I go OFFLINE now?
Do I power off the DSL modem, or the router?
