Now I know I"m probably going to get attacked by all the gun toating Microsoft haters but after installing Vista beta 2, (and actually liking the experience), I like most of it. (It actually feels very.....Mac-ish). One question I can't seem to find an answer for is finding out what my connection speed is on my dial up connection. Being one of the many that can't get broadband due to being more than 3 steps from a city bus stop and not rich enough to be able to afford satellite I like to hover over my two little screens down in the task bar. Then if I'm not up to at least 45 I usually disconnect and try again. In vista I can't seem to find out how fast I'm connected. Does anyone have any suggestions.

(O.k. bring on the attacks about how you should never install betas and Microsoft is trying to rule the world...lmao...I'm ready for it....
