    Not really sure where this belongs, but....

    long story short I accidentally deleted my broadcom 802.11 icon from my toolbar. I have been using my neighbors wireless signal and when I deleted the icon, that signal was #1 in the connection list. Now that I have my own signal, I can't reliably connect to it. I've searched the lapper but cant find the control panel for that program. Where is it? Any help is appreciated,

    Now where it is is going to depend on if you uninstalled it (program) or just deleted the icon or somehow took it out of your startup folder. If this was a program that was installed then you will need to look in the "programs" folder to see if you can locate it there. If it is an internal wireless card it is most likely run by windows zero configuration utility. First go to "my network places" either from the start button or control panel, and check to see if you somehow "disable" the adapter. In control panel you will locate it, right click and go to properties. If it was mistakenly disable the very bottom option will be "enable". Give those a try report back and we can go from there.

    Thanks for the reply. I had looked and looked in control panel, programs, etc. I finally switched to "classic view" and there it was. I knew I had merely deselected "show wireless icon in tray", just couldn't find out how to get it back. So, all is well. Thanks again.
