        I did know that this was available through the gnome-netinfo
tool, and was thinking that needing such a large app would be kind of
pointless if the user only wants to know link status and speed.

        Perhaps that could be worked in w/ gnome system tools somehow
(probrobly not the place to talk about that though) and then have an
option on a menu in the applet to goto that tool. Just a
suggestion...But I would like to know what Mark McLoughlin had done and
what he was doing with it.
