My platform is Windows 2000 SP4 (WinNT 5.00.2195)

A few days ago my computer hung following a 'time out' with my ISP mail server and required a re-boot. Since then the dial-up network (as well as my local area connection) icon no longer appears in the systray when I connect to the Internet. When I now finish on the Internet I need to disconnect by going to start/settings/network & dial up connections and right clicking the connection and selecting disconnect. It is interesting to note also that when selecting status after right clicking nothing happens.

I have checked the connection properties to ensure the 'show icon in taskbar when connected' is selected. I have also deleted the connection and set it up again but still nothing.

Given the problems I face with poor Internet connections and high connection costs I am anxious to find a way to get this information back again to regain some control over my Internet access.
