I installed sniffer on the workstations at our site.  We have NT and 2000 systems.  After installing, the windows 2000 machines have lost the icon in the Network and Dial Up Connections for the Local Area Connection.  I need to get to this to change DNS settings.  Is there a reason I lost this icon? and how can I get it back???

Try to look in the Device manager if your network card is still there and working correctly.
Is the sniffer W2K compatible ?

Yes, the sniffer software is 2000 compatible.  It is only on the 2000 machines that this has happened to.  I checked into the registry also and no go.  Any advice on this one?

Try to look in the registry under:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\....
Try all interfaces and check if a NameServer with the IP-address you want to change exist.
If exist, for the time being you can change your nameserver here.
Did you also try to refresh the view 'Network and Dial-up Connections' and to re-arange icons.
Are you still seeing your Local Area Connection when you select menuitem Advanced | Advanced settings...

The most inportant part of this question is "How do I get the Local Area Connection icon back on the windows 2000 machines?"

I have tried all of the above with no success.

I really don't know.
Can you tell me the name of the sniffer software.
