Two little computers in task tray, for modem connect, not showing.

I just reloaded my entire PC.

When I was connected to the Internet, I used to have two little computers in my Task Tray that would flash when there was modem activity.

When I dis-connected they disappeared, giving me an indication that I was no longer on-line.

But now after the re-load, they are gone. I looked in all the Internet connection and modem settings, but I could not find anything that said: "Show modem Connection Icon in Task Tray".

I have W2k Pro SP4, with all the updates as of 5/9/2005, USR Performance Pro 56k Modem.

Does any one know how I can get this icon back?

From your Desktop screen, click onto Start, then Settings.
Open Network and Dial-up Connections.
Right click on your connection in the Network and Dial-up Connections window.
Click Properties  
Check that there is a tick next to the option Show an Icon on Taskbar after Connected and click the OK button.
