Vista Guest Account not showing WLANTRAY icon but Admin account does-how fix?

Have Dell XPS 1530.
Have Network Lan Icon (wireless) in sysray (on right of course) to select a wireless network.
Shows up when I log on to my admin account called - Home. This is password protected.

When I log onto non password GUEST account, tray icon not showing up, therefore user cannot select a wireless account unless I go into my password protected HOME (admin) account and pick a network (in my house 2 networks) to connect to.

How resolve?


Thanks so much
Peter

Do you have the permissions setup for the Guest account to use WiFi and the network?

Not sure how I would check that to be stupidly honest...

I did just set up a standard (non Guest account) and the icon showed up for that account..
Time to go to sleep.

Thanks

Does it appear if you use Start->Log Off, then logon again using the Guest account?

See this article - http://winhlp.com/node/16

i.e. It's possible the tray icon just doesn't have time to load without a decent pause at the login screen, but usually it will be multiple icons missing, not just the wireless util.

Gave up and deleted Guest account and set up Standard account. All fine now.
Thanks
