Nothing. A tooltip isn't displayed the first time you hover over the icon. Once you open the menu or the application that deals with networking, the tooltip appears. This is a bug in XP and no longer exists in Vista and later.

Hi all,

some have mentioned you can get the strength of your network from the system

I have never been able to get any info on wireless networking from the tray on
numerous laptops all running xp home.

Any hints on what has to be configured?
