    I was in the network preferences a while back to try and get network sharing on. I can't remember what I did, but this annoying symbol is always in the menu bar and I want to get rid of it. How and what is it anyway ?

    Thank You

    Press and hold CMD and drag the icon off the menu bar. IIRC, it's some kind of network connection.

    It works perfectly... Learn something new everyday.

    What is it though ?

    Well, you never actually said which icon on the menu you showed us is the one you want to get rid of.

    that is the PPPoE service... in Network pref > Ethernet > Configure Box > Select Create PPPoE Service.

    Under the PPPoE service you will see a check box to add the icon to the menu bar. :)
