Why is a cross shown between Network and Internet?

Q: Why is a cross shown between Network and Internet?

My laptop is connected to a router (DLink DSL 524T) via network cable. Although I could still connect to the net through the router there is a cross shown between the Network and Internet in the Networks and Sharing Center.

This isn't a big deal (since I connect to the internet) but I was wondering why the cross is there? Is there a way I could get it off?

P.S. - I've attached a screenshot of the networkd and sharing center in case my explanation was a bit confusing

Preferred Solution: Why is a cross shown between Network and Internet?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello

I have a wireless home network set up but unfortunately the desktop PC I use for most of my CAD work does not have a wireless adapter and it would be more trouble than it is worth to run a wire to my home office. I am wondering if it is possible for me to have my laptop connected to the wireless network and have a second wired network set up in the office through a router and have the laptop feed the connection to the desktop through the second network. I attempted to google the question but couldn't think of a way to word it, or what the setup would even be called.

Anyways, thanks in advanced

Hello, recently here at work we've been having more and more trouble with the "Could not reconnect all network drives" popup when users log on to their computer. All network drives have a red cross on their icon in explorer. It's a wired network.
I've tried enabling the "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" policy under Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Logon in the Group Policy Editor, but this didn't help. Updating the driver for the network card also
didn't help.
Once a user clicks on a network drive it instantly becomes available and stays available until the next reboot. The problem is that users have got programs which rely on having connection to certain network folders. So now they first need to open windows
explorer and click on each network folder to get it connect before they can open their program.
I've noticed users getting this error more and more after changing from 3com switches to cisco 2960 switches.
Anyone any ideas? (Switching back to 3com switches isn't an option)
 
Sincerely,
 
Peter 

A:Red X (cross) over network drive on startup, Could not reconnect all network drives.

Hello, thanks for your help. I seem to have found the problem. The switches are configured for spanning tree, now after changing the port where I'm connected on to use spanning-tree portfast instead of normal spanning-tree the problem disappeared. It
seems the spanning-tree protocol causes a bit of a delay which explains why the network folders don't connect. But it also seems that the GPO
Computer
Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon.
Doesn't wait for a logical signal because if you read the GPO description I would expect it to wait for a network connection to our domain but it seems it only waits for a signal and not a domain signal, if you know what I mean.
 
Thanks again for your help.

I have windows 7 Ultimate installed (was originally installed as a clean install) and have ever since it was RTM. Everything has been running flawlessly and still is except for one thing. My network cards don't show up under Network and Sharing Center, but they do show normally under device manager and my network connection is rock solid. Currenly I'm plugged into a 10/100mb At&t U-Verse Residential Gateway (router). Because of this I can't manage either of my NICs and I can't join my homegroup.

The NICs are intergrated into the motherboard. The NICs are Nvidia nForce adapters.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? Or at least know where I can go to figure this out?

Thank you!!

I have a linksys usb600n (v2) using the Win7 driver from linksys. It installs and is displayed correctly in Device Manger - BUT it doesn't appear in the Network and Sharing Center as an adapter. This same device and driver were previously working just fine in this system - but I rebuilt the OS (clean install) after testing a number of security products out.

The initial install went fine - no problems that I remember - just plug in the adapter and install the drivers obtained from Linksys (Ver 3.00.01.0). I tried the same thing on the re-build and it looks fine until I go into the Network Center and can't set up wireless networking since the adapter does not appear.

SIW shows TWO (2) linksys USB adapters under Hardware/Network Adapters, but does not show the network adapters in the Network Information section.

Hi dhartmann. Welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

It would seem that your computer is confused!! I would suggest, while the usb adapter is plugged in, you remove all drivers in "Device manager". Then unplug the usb adapter and reboot the computer. After Windows has loaded, check "Device manager" again for any remnants of usb adapter drivers. If it is clean, plug the adapter in again so that the usb driver can install again but this time with only one instance. That should un-confuse your computer and allow the adapter to appear in network adapte... Read more

Hello,
I'm using a Toshiba M505-S4940 running Win 7 (64), and have developed the problem in the last several weeks of my system tray icon for wireless showing a red "x" instead of the normal connection signal. When I access the Network and Sharing Center and click the link to Change Adapter Settings, the window for Network Connections is entirely empty - no adapters, nothing (and thus no way to modify adapter settings). Checking in Device Manager shows both of my adapters (Wireless = Realtek RTL8192E, Wired = Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller), and both are functioning. I'm able to access the internet both wired and wirelessly. I've tried to update the drivers for the wireless connection, also tried to approximate how far back the problem started and doing a system restore to that point. I could restore back further but don't want to deal with having to reinstall all of the software that I've installed in the last 6 months. Any suggestions are welcome

I am connected to a network and have internet access.

However, the network status icon has a red cross on it as if i am not connected. Even more strange is if i hover over the icon its read "Network Internet access"

I don't use any third party connection software and don't have any third party firewalls running.

I am plugged in direct to the router with an ethernet cable.

This isn't a massive problem but i'd prefer the icon not to have the red cross on it.

Hey guys.

I'm having a problem seeing a shared printer over my LAN. It's shared on a box running XP Pro. Sharing is turned on, and the printer has been "shared." Still no luck looking for it from the other PCs in the office. Any advice?

Part two: I've been trying to see the printer from a Mac as well, with no success. I can see the PC workgroup, and the computer sharing the printer, but I can't log in to it. I can log in to the other PCs on the network by entering the "computer name" as the username, and the administrator password. This particular machine, however, won't let me do that. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Alex.
 

A:Cross-platform Network printers

Although you likely have a lot of this working, the basics for troubleshooting are:

1. Make sure you have the same IP scheme (e.g. 192.168.0.x).

2. Make sure you have the same Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS IP addresses.

3. Make sure you can ping the other computer's IP address. If this fails, just for testing, make sure you turn off XP's as well as any other firewall.

4. Make sure you can ping the other computers by name.

5. Make sure you have the same workgroup name (watch for trailing spaces)

6. For troubleshooting purposes, turn off XP's and completely uninstall any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity after you get it working.

7. With XP, make sure you have the same username and password as the person logging onto the other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.

Hi,

I have a small multi platform home network that I am trying to expand by the addition of a NAS server. I have an iMac 1TB running OS 10.8, a Windows 7 laptop 500 GB and 2 iPads operating over a wireless network with a Netgear DNG2000v2 router, currently using an Iomega 1TB Media Drive for back up. The new NAS is a LG N2A2 2TB which I have initially set up with RAID 0. My aim was to use the NAS as a central cross platform file server while synchronising files with the iMac as back up, allowing cross platform and remote access to files. I generally use iTunes for Media and Picasa for my Photos.

This is probably a straightforward bread and butter problem for network designers but my Internet research seems to be getting me more confused than illuminated.

Is there a way to backup the computers to the NAS while also allowing cross platform synchronisation, file sharing and remote access.

From what I have discovered Time Machine should be avoided because of its expansion to file the external disk size. Synctoy is not OS X compatible.

As the Windows and Mac file structures are fundamentally different what is the solution to this anomaly. Does the solution require proprietary software.

As I have 1TB of data to transfer I would like to get it right from the outset, I would be grateful for some experienced guidance or direction to a suitable source.

Thx

I successfully configured a two-PC Ethernet network linking a Win98 system with a WinXP system via a cross-over cable. Then I somehow configured the Win98 system to access the WinXP's dial-up internet connection. The Win98 shared the WinXP's dial-up connection fine and the network worked great.

Now I have broadband (DSL) on the WinXP which utilizes a Zoom ADSL X4 5651 unit and is attached via USB. The back panel of the 5651 also has an Ethernet port.

So I attempted to configure the Win98 system to access the WinXP's broadband connection and no soap; didn't work. I tried BOTH the existing network setup and then a direct connection linking the Win98 from its Ethernet port to the Ethernet port of the 5651 with the cross-over cable, and neither worked.

The 5651 instructions claim a second computer CAN share the internet connection via Ethernet if the main system uses the USB port. And like I said, the main system (WinXP) does use the 5651's USB port. So I'm thinking that my problem stems from the fact that a cross-over cable is different from a regular Ethernet cable.

So, two questions:
1) do cross-over Ethernet cables differ from "regular" Ethernet cables, and more importantly
2) can I configure broadband sharing via the cross-over network I've created like I had with my dial-up connection?

Thanks in advance.

Since a couple of days I'm experiencing this strange issue.

The connections symbol shows the red X
The network drivers are enabled and work fine in the device manager
In device manager there is a Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-interface / Microsoft ISATAP / Microsoft ISATAP #2 and a Microsoft ISATAP #2 with yellow exclamation mark
Browsing works fine both wired and wireless
Reinstalling the drivers won't fix the issue
Restoring the system to a previous state didn't solve it
In other words. I'm at a loss. I have no clue what causes the issue.

Since I have no clue what information you guys want me to add ask me and I'll upload it.

A:No network adapter shown in device manager

Hi: You should see a device labeled as a Network Controller under an Other Devices category in the device manager. The Network Controller will have a little ! mark inside a yellow triangle. That is the wireless card that needs a driver. Since there can be more than one model wireless card in that notebook series, I don't know what driver you need to get the card to work but that is easy enough to find out. Please post the hardware ID for the device you see listed as a Network Controller. To find the hardware ID, click on the device labeled as a Network Controller. Then click on the details tab at the top of the network controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

So I had my system running for 10 days without any reboots, but in that time I might have done something to cause issues. I remember trying to remove Homegroup and a few others, without success. Forgot about and went on with my day.

Finally rebooted, and now within Windows Explorer, The Network icon will not show any computers, I click on it, nothing happens.

I have checked all Homegroup related tweaks and none seem to be the cause.

Any ideas? What I may have done, or what could cause this?

*sidenote, but may be related, a few of my programs didn't start up (even though in Ccleaner they still show as apps that start on boot).

A:No Network Computers Shown - Windows Explorer

If you removed the home group, you will have to create another one or rejoin one for a homegroup to show up again.

Since Moving to Windows 10 Pro, It appears ANYTHING to do with Access to my NAS is not available. When attempting to View or Access my NAS, the Field is EMPTY, other than the Local Drive Info. The maker of my NAS, Synology confirms this issue and many others are experiencing the same problems. Synology?s ?NAS Assistant allows the Drives to be Mapped, but this is a work around at this point. In addition I attempted to Do a SYSTEM IMAGE BACKUP, an wanted to store it onto my NAS. The System Image "Wizard in Windows 10 gives you the option to send it to a Network Device, but there again... NO NAS on the Network is displayed. Under "This PC" in Explorer, The NAS Icon For Synology is Displayed, but clicking on it displays an empty page. Is Microsoft aware and acknowledging this problem? When I moved to an NAS and set up multiple Folders in WIN 7, the only problem I encountered was the dreaded "RED X" syndrome, where unless you manually clicked on the Drive Letter in Explorer, the PC would not be able to access the NAS. The only reliable solution was the Batch File written by Zorn Software....( http://zornsoftware.codenature.info/blog/windows-7-disconnected-network-drives.html ) ... I was hoping that WIN 10 would not suffer this age old problem, but it's still there, but thankfully the executable he offers for free also work in WIN 10..... Does ANYONE have the true answer to this Map Drive issue?

Sorry for my English..

Hi!

Maybe I can describe more than one problem in this thread and not to create new one?

1. Like I said, network adapters shown only in safe mode on WinXPSP2. I'm talking about Device Manager. If I'm booting normally or in Safe mode with Networking, there are NO network adapters, even what to expand. And if I disable all the adapters in safe mode, there are all in normal mode. But if I enable them, they all disappears. When I enable all adapters, that "sector" "Network adapters" disappears.
In Network Connections there are no Local area network. There are my DSL, but no LAN. And Win gives me 769 error, can it be because there are no LAN? I can't connect to Internet on that computer.

2. And now, what happened BEFORE that. I think, that could "break" my PC. Suddenly, Win "thrown" me error. It said, that my DirectSound drivers are bad, something like that. I have downloaded required drivers and tried to install them. But.. PC just restarted in installation progress. I turned of automatic restart on errors. Windows just "thrown" me blue error screen, where was written one file, sysaudio.sys. I found that file in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\. Downloaded file from DC++ and replaced it. Size was the same. But still appears blue error screen with same error and file. Then downloaded (then my connection was still working) drivers exactly for that motherboard (specifically, for chipset), and aga...

This happened only a little while ago today after I shut down my laptop, when I opened it up a red cross appeared where the bar showing  the internet connection is. I can access the internet fine though which is weird (at roughly 12MB). It's not a big problem, but I would prefer if I could see the connection bar again.
This is what it looks like:

 
Any help would be most appreciated,

I have searched google for ours trying to find a fix for this but to no avail.

CD drive and virtual drives dont appear in my computer and whenever i put in a dvd nothing comes up.

it appears in device manager and disc management however so i know there is nothing physically wrong with the optical drive. Under disc manager i can see the details about the dvd such as dvd name, size etc.

i tried changing drive letter and path but unfortunately that doesnt fix it. the letter "applies" for a second then disappears again.

any help would be highly appreciated.

also i am using windos 7 with all the updates installed

Hi,

I own a Acer Aspire S3-951 ultrabook.

I accidentally installed the wrong drivers yesterday while updating the device drivers as I ran into internet trouble and diagnostics said there seems to be a problem with either the drivers or hardware. Ever since the system is unable to detect my network adapter. It should be an Atheros ar5bwb225 adapter. When I boot the system there was a big red X and no connection, so I ran diagnostics and it said I didn't have the drivers (the incorrect drivers installed over the old one). In Device manager, unfortunately neither the old nor new(wrong) drivers are displayed, so I tried to uninstall the Atheros installation program to remove the wrong drivers.

That ran into trouble as the wrong drivers could not be uninstalled because it was unable to locate the network card for the wrong drivers. So I downloaded the correct driver from the Acer website and ran setup. Setup could not be completed because it says my network adapter is unplugged.

Followed a few different links on this site including the IP reset in this post: http://www.sevenforums.com/network-s...but-s-not.html

Also disabled, uninstalled and removed Bonjour. With IPconfig, as I'm using a USB wireless adapter temporarily it shows:
Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection 4:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Hi veryone!

No internet access while using local Area connection, or wireless network connection, although someone else connects to the same modem router via his mobile phone.

I have TP-link(300MBps) wireless N USB ADSL2 +Modem Router.



I have tried troublshoting, then I found the broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues'
As screenshot shows below




if so, then why would still the other person have been accessing the internet without problems and had to not unplugged and plugged the modem.
I have unplugged my Modem and then plugged it again, so the problem solved, but I disrupted(disturbed) the other person.

I was expecting that when I do this below, it would be OK
I have cleared Cach of my DSL.
1- Open CMD as adminstrator.
2- type ipconfig /flushdns

A:An exclamation mark is shown on LAN/Wireless Network connection

You've flushed your DNS cache but that doesn't mean you have working DNS servers, which is one possible cause. Do an IPCONFIG /ALL in the command line and verify that you have a legitimate private IP address and if you have DNS servers configured, consider changing them to googles public DNS servers such as 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4 . This is just one possible cause as you troubleshoot it, if you're still having the problem.

Hi shah-aijaz, Sorry to hear that you are having issues with the wifi on your notebook. I have done some research and I have found that the computer that you have listed does NOT have Windows 7. Are you certain that you are giving the proper model number of your computer?  Please check the bottom of your computer and the product number should be listed on a white sticker by a bar code.

 

Please write back at your convenience.

 

Thank you.
