Vista Network Connection Icon always with red X
Goodmorning and trust the all in the US and all US citizens abroad had a great Thanksgiving.
The Network Connection Icon on my PC now always shows a red X even when I am connected and on line. Can someone please help.
I have a Dell Inspiron with a Vista Ultimate. I only have one connection and thats a modem line (I live in the country in France more than 15 kilometers from a Broadband station - in 2009 will have a fibre optic - so now am on slow mail) I have no netwirk and the only other device connected is the printer - also a Dell. I have had the system 11 months but only in the last 3 weeks has the system persisted with the red x on the Icon even when connectd. I cant find a solution to this one. Only thing I do find is Microsoft KB 945925 that says you have to live with it !! But thatas I think from late 2007. I would appreciate any help.
Many thanks
R.

Re: Vista Network Connection Icon always with red X
Maybe you are looking at a different network icon. People can have up to three or four network icons, depending on how many network adapters you have in your computer.

You could have a ethernet connection (LAN), inbuilt wireless connection(WLAN), or even a mobile add on connection (USB WLAN)...

To see what connection that icon is for..double click on it and click on properties.

You can also untick the box that says to show the network connection in the notification area.

Hope this helps
