Default network icon not showing in system tray
Hello,

I am brand new to PCBSD, and have just installed Isotope on my ASUS U56E laptop.

I am trying to connect to my router, but the network icon in the system tray is not showing.

The network card in the laptop is an Intel Centrino Wireless-N WiMax 6150 (rev. 67) chip.

I had had a world of trouble trying to set up a connection with several flavors of Linux (Ubuntu 12.04, Xubuntu 10.1, Cruncbang, Linuxmint) with no success.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you go into the control panel and enable the tray icon for the connection?

Default couldn't find it
I am not very familiar with KDE to begin with. Then again, I tried the browser and it couldn't connect..

You should have an icon on your desktop called PC-BSD Control Panel. That's where you'll find the network connection settings.

Thanks, I have found it. Problem solved, had a typo in entering the wpa key.

Thank you again for your help and prompt reply.
