dialup connection icon not in systray

By kevin ·
I have pc with XP pro that does not have the icon for the dial up connection in the systray. I have checked in the connection properties and the "display notice when connected" is checked. I have checked the internet properties it is also turned on there. This is a problem since my user can not disconnect with out shutting down the system. Thanks
for any help!!

Hi Kevin:

What ISP are you using and have you installed specific ISP related software on that machine? If so, please list titles.

It's not being hidden is it? Do you have the show/hide button by the taskbar icons? Perhaps it's just being put with the hidden taskbar icons.
If so just right click the taskbar and hit properties then on taskbar tab hit customize button near the bottom. After that just find the dialup connection in the list and set it to always show.

Oh and you dont have to shut down to disconnect from dialup if it doesn't show up in the taskbar icons. Just go to network connections in control panel and right click the dialup icon and hit disconnect. I'd suggest adding network connections to the start menu as a menu so it's easy to access the dialup icon. I find that most useful on my home computer which has 26.4kbps (horrible i know) dialup.
