    I just installed 10.5.2, and the modem icon now appears on the menu bar. The computer doesn't have a modem port, so I cannot configure the Network Preferences panel to not display the modem.

    Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

    Might wanna check your bluetooth settings too. If you've connected your mobile phone to your laptop at some point then you may have allowed it to be used as a bluetooth DUN modem. Mine showed up after that too.

    If not the case, and its due to 10.5.2......then there's prolly something else going. Yeah, I know...obvious :D

    Hold down the Command key and drag it off the menu bar like you would the dock. Problem solved.
