I've just upgraded to windows 7 and I despise the system tray network icon - it tells you nothing. In XP there used to be the option to display network and internet connection icons in the system tray. When you hovered the mouse over these icons they would display your network speed and your internet downstream speed. This seems to have been removed from Win 7 due to resources, which is ludicrous. I can't find my internet connection speed unless I go into the router software.
Does anyone know how to display my internet connection speed in Windows 7? Just the internet speed not activity etc.
I've tried Network Activity Indicator but this doesn't seem to do it. Is there a simple program that will do this?
I really hate microsoft when the remove these features altogether rather than turn them off by default and then allow you to search for 30 mins on the internet to find how to the feature on - like quick launch.
