    But thanks for the suggestion.

    Further to my investigation, I went to the startup tab (under task manager) and disabled ALL items.. and the problem persists.

    Obviously, it is something loaded on startup.. is there any other place I can look for startups?

    Right click on the icon and disable "ASUS Mini Bar".

    Ah Ha! That was it! It was nothing to do with the internet, but rather the power status. Odd that it still appeared even when I disabled this ASUS startup. And odd that you can do nothing with it.. clicking on it to change power options does nothing. Will need to look into this more.

    Thank you very much, Mr. Sardonicus!

    Interesting that it turns out to be an ASUS high performance thing. Kind of confusing since a plane icon is thought of as Airplane Mode. I suggest they change that to a Formula One race car or similar.

    Glad you got it worked out.
