Network Activity Indicator 1.6

Simple tool that doesn't need installation, displaying the old 'two monitors' icon in Windows 7 for network connection in system tray
Network Activity Indicator is a small application that brings back the icon with two monitors assigned to network connection in the system tray area in Windows 7.

It does not require installation, which means that Network Activity Indicator is portable. You can drop the executable file somewhere on the hard drive and just click it to run.

Otherwise, you can save Network Activity Indicator to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine that runs under Windows 7 operating system.

What's worth mentioning is that the tool does not add new entries to the Windows registry, Start menu or any other part of the HDD, leaving it clean after removal.

Once initialized, the network connection icon is immediately changed into the one displaying two blinking monitors.

Several options are available in the icon's context menu. For example, you can select the network interface and view traffic (sent and received packets) and statistics (e.g. timeout algorithm, minimum and maximum timeout, errors received).

Plus, you can view network status and properties on a selected connection, open the network connections directory in Explorer, access Windows Firewall settings as well as the Network and Sharing Center.

The program is very low-demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM, so it's not a concern to the overall performance of the computer. We have not encountered any difficulties in our tests, since the tool did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.

To sum things up, Network Activity Indicator is a reliable application for showing the icon with two monitors for network connection in Windows 7, backed up by a set of useful options.
