    how to control taskbar Internet icon 1909?

    The taskbar Internet icon often contradicts what the rest of Windows 1909 indicates as happening (and contradicts what actually Is happening with the Internet connection)

    I have been asking for WEEKS so far in tenforums with NO replies and NO advice and NO suggestions!

    Internet icon often not showing on taskbar with Mobile Partner

    Have found some work-arounds which are (only!) sometimes effective; the only one that solidly works (and then only for 1 - 3 days max) is to uninstall/re-install Mobile Partner (which never had such problems in 1703 or 1903) .... or use a different port, which then only works for 1 - 3 days.

    Hi, sorry you've had no replies. No reply indicates no one has relevant comment. Perhaps no-one here knows what a Mobile Partner is, and thus you get no replies. No one is obliged to reply- you paid nothing... we are users just like you.

    It is against forum rules to repost the same thing.

    You clearly stated your criterion for people to reply to you:

    Please respond ONLY if you have specific information as to this issue:
    So... I would guess people have respected your requirement.

    Thanks, have followed your advice and edited posts (which are all slightly different with different approaches/aspects)

    Although previously stated, have further clarified thusly:

    This started with 1909 (have had NO problems over YEARS with this SAME Mobile Partner dongle in 1709, 1803 or 1903). Mobile Partner is a G3 broadband connection (dongle uses Cellular Data Network) and is my ONLY Internet connection (WiFi/WLAN disabled: see Network Connections attachment).

    here's an easy useful provisional "fix" (click on link) >>

    network connectivity icon is giving wrong information

    - - - Updated - - -

    So far the provisional fixes have been working, the only issue (after Mobile Partner re-installation with cleaned-out Registry entries) being to get Windows Shut Down (with MP turned off & disconnected) before Windows re-starts MP ("Let Windows manage this connection"). So while updating the MP software is nice in theory, since it is not possible to get Huawei updated firmware (there is none!) nor smart to get ersatz "updated" firmware from dubious and proven malware-issuing websites, and since this is a compatibility/conflict issue with Windows 1909 now .... the solution to the malfunctioning icon problem is through WINDOWS (Mobile Partner works great in any case, despite that ONE sometimes silly icon and of course what is driving the icon!).
