Is there a way to get a specific "connection" icon on taskbar? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a fairly slow, unreliable connection to the Internet so I like to have an icon on the taskbar which shows me that I am connected and also shows when I am transferring data over the connection.   That way I know if something is just taking a long time as opposed to not doing anything.  In previous versions,  up to XP anyway, there was a check box on connection's property page which would do this.  I cannot find it in Win7.  Is it in a different place or gone altogether?

    I have an icon labelelled "Network" on the taskbar now but it doesn't do this.  If I click on it it takes me to the network and sharing center where I can select a connection and eventually get to where I would have expected to find the aforementioned checkbox in previous versions of Windows.  Thanks or your help.
