    is the internet working ?
    can we see a device manager screen shot

    make and model of the PC

    drivers will be on the PC manufacturers website

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Device Manager
    Post back the results in device manager
    You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC.
    Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the screen shot and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

    how to access device manager for different windows versions
    http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm

    Hold the Windows key and press Pause key, should open to allow device manager to be seen, menu on the left hand side

    on a laptop you may need to use Hold the Windows key and press FN key + the pause key

    if the above does not work then

    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    once you are in device manager then

    network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there
    are there any ! ? or X

    post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

    To post a screen shot of the active window.
    Windows XP
    Hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application (Start> All Programs> Accessories> Paint) and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

    Yes! The Icon Missing from the Taskbar Notification area. Connection and Internet works; but I am unable to view from the missing Icon the Signal Strength and kbs when I click on that Icon I can view at Network Places all about my Wireless Status with Firewall etc. The only way I can watch the Status of my Connection through Web site http://gateway.2wire.net that gives 4 things like this. see the attachment and I have the ipconfig of the connection

    this may work- not an XP - so cant check myself
    Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection
    Then tick on Show connection status icon on taskbar "Show icon in notification area when connected".
    right click on the "Taskbar Properties" uncheck the "Hide inactive icons" box.
