Windows toolbar icon says I'm not connected when I am

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is stupid and annoying. I'm clearly connected!

How do I fix it?

Connected to what though? Wireless? Bluetooth?

My older computer does this too, I've learned to ignore it.... but that still doesn't fix whatever the problem is....... that computer is running Vista Basic 32 bit

Connection to the internet for me..... says I'm connected to my home network but not connected to the internet, however I can view web pages just fine.

oh and it's physically connected via CAT 6 cable directly to the router

ASUS P4P800 Motherboard
Intel Pentium 4 3GHz w/HyperThread

PNY GeForce 7800 GS w/256

If it's your extra network adapters showing up, in the properties of them somewhere you can check a box that will make them not show in the taskbar.

might work...... I've had it on with the world back on the icon before and it'll go out again after a while (I notice it next time I am at the computer) we'll see if this works and doesn't go out again.

Hopefully it'll work for TFB too.
