1. Open Control Panel and click on 'Network Connections'.
2. Right-click the "Local Area Connection" icon and choose 'Properties'
3. There should be a tick-box for "Show icon in notification area when connected". Click it to put a tick in there, then click 'OK'.
However, this icon won't allow you to disconnect unless it's a disl-up connection. The whole idea of having DSL is to have an 'always on' connection. What you can do, however, is install a firewall (which is a must anyway for anyone with internet access). The firewall will also put it's own icon in the system-tray. With this you can right-click and choose "Stop All Internet Activity". This will have the same effect as disconnecting without actually having to disconnect. When you want to use the internet again, simply right-click the firewall icon, click the same option as before and it will unblock the connection.
You will have to install an old version of ZoneAlarm for 98SE, as newer versions are XP only. You need a version earlier than 6.5 and you can get it here (ZoneAlarm 6.1.744.1 ): http://www.oldversio...am.php?n=zalarm
