    How to get rid of modem icon in menu

    I have a MacBook Pro with no modem. Yet the modem/phone icon appears in my crowded menu. Is there a way to make this disappear? Thanks!

    'Is there a way to make this (modem/phone icon) disappear?'

    01. Launch 'System Preferences' (in the /Applications/' folder, or via the 'Apple, System Preferences' menu item).
    02. Click on the 'Network' utility icon.
    03. From the resultant window's 'Show:' popup menu - select 'Internal Modem'*.
    04. Click on the 'Modem' tab.
    05. Click on the 'Show modem status in menu bar' check box, to remove the check mark.

    -----

    * - If 'Internal Modem' is not listed, then ...
    01. Select 'Network Port Configurations'.
    02. Click on the 'Internal Modem' check box - to add a check mark.
    03. Click on the 'Apply Now' button.
    04. Perform the above Steps - 03 through 05.

    Is the modem enabled in the configuration. If so, you can remove it from the system by

    selecting network from system preferences, select ' configure ports' and unmark the modem (and any other unused network port).


    Good luck, Kees

    THanks guys but neither of these work. Internal Modem does not appear on any panels on my MacBook Pro.
