I can't quite figure out what tool you are looking for. If you right click on the "task bar" you can go to add then applets and see a list of things to add. I asume you tried that and can't find it. I am not familiar with the applet you are talking about. Was it there by default last time you isntalled Mandrake? Also, are you not able to connect with out this applet, when you say you have "lost control" of your NIC what do you mean by that, and what exactly are you using for your "hook up"

I have a Cable connection and yes the "applet" was there by default. it's just an icon that sits in your taskbar/system tray...on which you can click to access your network connection , (monitor network and functions such as enable or dissable).. I did look for it in the Add and remove list but there is no entry for it.. now im automaticaly on line all the time and cannot access my connection to disable it unless i go to > configure my computer"...!

thanx for n e help.
