Network Icon In Notification Area Shows Access Local Only
The network icon shows access Local Only. The network and sharing center
shows a red X to the internet. However, I have internet access. It's just
reporting that I don't. This is intermittent. Sometimes rebooting solves
the issue but the Local Only icon can come back shortly afterwards. Has
anyone seen this before?

Thanks.

The network connectivity status incorrectly appears as "Local only" on a
Windows Server 2008-based or Windows Vista-based computer that has more
than one network adapter
