    Hey guys,
    Would really appreciate some help with this. Am running WinXP Home with SP2 installed, and using a Linksys Wireless USB adaptor.
    Recently, my wireless network system tray icon has disappeared. I've looked in my Network Connections, but there's no sign of it there either.
    The thing is, because I had the settings up and running for the network I connect to before the icon disappeared, WinXP will somehow connect to the network, despite showing NO signs of any connection at all.
    It's frustrating, because it means that I cannot search for networks, or repair a connection. I've even tried using different wireless adaptors, but there is still no sign of the icon in the system tray or in connection manager.
    Any and all help would be great!
    Cheers,
    James

    Have you checked in your program files alot of wireless cards install a little program that ends up in the program files and you then can start the exe.

    If you find it there and run it and it is what you were looking for you may want to put it into startup.
