Even more annoying, win2k and ME have options to only start up networking
if it detects you are on a network. As best as I can tell, it looks for
traffic, and if it sees no traffic, you're not on a network. Pain in the
rear...my home network has zero traffic unless I generate some, so Windows
never though I was on a network.
