    Hi,
    Since I installed my nF4 drivers, a little local area connection icon has appeared, and I cant get rid of it. I have unchecked the box saying 'notyfiy me when this connection has limited/no connectivity', but it remains. Any ideas?
    Cheers,
    John

    It might be in a utility you installed when you installed the new drivers?!

    Is it not picking up another NIC you have installed?

    May seem silly but have you unchecked "Show icon in notification area when connnected" ?

    if its showing when the device is not connected then I the only way I ever found to hide it was to disable it in device manager or the bios

    though I don't recall seeing "notyfiy me when this connection has limited/no connectivity" so maybe that is new to SP2 or something - or it didn't work when I tried it
