Network connection icon always shows "not connected" even though I am

Q: Network connection icon always shows "not connected" even though I am

Hello,

whenever I'm connected to a network, the attached icon is displayed. The other icons (e.g. the spinning wheel thing when establishing a connection) do work, but the "connected" icon seems to have disappeared for no reason. I did not install any new software and I don't know what else might have triggered this, it was just that way when I booted my pc a few days ago.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Preferred Solution: Network connection icon always shows "not connected" even though I am

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.)

You might have a two adapters enabled. Right click on the bars and open the network and sharing center. Then in the left pane click on change adapter settings and see if there are 2 adapters present. If so disable the one that isn't wireless..I don't know if the two are related but mine used to look like this the left pic now it looks like the right pic. And it happened right after some windows updates.

So I guess the title says it all:

Internet connection in (in the Internet Connection list) shows "Connected" but I can't go to any website.
neither in Opera nor in IE.

Fresh installed windows XP SP 2
Connecting through the Ethernet LAN wire.
The connection was working before I reinstalled Windows.
The connection shows the name of my Ethernet device so I don't think it's a driver problem.

Thanks

What is your computer connected to? Go to "run" from the Start menu and type cmd then when you get a black box type ipconfig and then hit return. Then post back with the first part of the ip address, DON'T post all of it!

I am trying to discern if my Intel Bluetooth device is not really correctly installed yet.
This is on a Zenbook UX305FA - has Intel WIFI + Bluetooth.
Would not pair with anything so I turned off the WIFI, uninstalled Bluetooth device and Driver [tickbox checked].
Downloaded the latest Bluetooth Device driver package from ASUS. Installed - all appeared well.

But when Bluetooth is ON [taskbar, open properties, scans .... or appears to be scanning] it still shows "Not Connected".
I finally was able to get it paired with a bluetooth speaker I have and it STILL shows "Not Connected".

anyone run across this or is it a peculiarity associated with this system?

my network access icon on the bottom right taskbar has a yellow triangle over it and says i have "no internet access" even though i clearly have internet.

How to fix this?
 

A:network icon says "no internet access" but i am connected

Try to disable and enable the WiFi adapter by going through 'Network and Sharing Center' .

Or have you restart your system? Usually there's only a delayed monitoring which it didn't show in realtime.

Hello,

After functioning properly for a long time, my wireless internet has stopped functioning. I was watching youtube while installing the user software for a new wireless printer (Canon imageCLASS MF4800 Series) from a CD. I accidently hit the CD eject which interrupted the installation. I pushed the CD back in and resumed installation, which completed quickly and all the programs it installed worked fine. After my youtube video finished I noticed that I was no longer connected to the network the bottom right indicator thing said "Not connected, No connections available."

When I try to make a network map from the control panel it says, "The adapter is not connected." I can connect to the network with an ethernet cable (into my modem) and I can also connect to the internet with a wired hotspot from my phone (via usb).

I am pretty sure my modem is setup properly because it has worked with this computer for a long time and is currently working with a similar laptop (also HP, also Windows 7 Professional x64).

I have looked around on the internet for fixes so I have tried disabling and enabling my "Wireless Network Connection" in the Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections page, without success. I have also tried uninstalling the Network Adapter from the Device manager and then restarting my computer, without success. My network adapter drivers are also up to date (according to windows)

Hi all,

I hope someone can help me. I am a newbie at networking. I am trying to set up basic wireless networking in Windows XP Home Edition. I have followed instructions to set up the network. The instructions tell me to go to "Control Panel" and click on "Network Connections". Then from there it tells me to right click on the "Wireless Network Connection" icon and select "Properties".

The big problem is that I do not have a "Wireless Network Connection" icon at all (see attached). How do I get the "Wireless Network Connection" icon to appear in my "Network Connections" dialog box/window?? I have tried looking everywhere but can not find a way to activate this icon.

My computer is a Hewlett Packard home PC. I have successfully installed a 4port Netgear router and have also successfully connected a Netgear wireless "g" access point to this router. From all indication, all the hardware is working fine and I am able to connect to the internet via the router. I wonder if the Netgear wireless access point has somehow disable my "Wireless Network Connection" icon.

Sorry for the rambling but I would really appreciate any suggestions at this point. It's been frustrating.

Thank you,
Tony.

Hi folks. This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you. Not sure if that matters.

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled. When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before. After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public". I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated". What does this mean and how can I fix this? How did this happen? Thanks.

How many DCs are there in the domain?
I suggest that you remove the Windows 7 computer from the AD, and exit the Windows 7 computer from domain. Then, re-join the computer to the domain. How does it work now?
If the issue persists, please temporary disable the firewall on both computers. Also, please check if Network Location Awareness service is enabled on the server and Windows 7 computers.Arthur Xie - MSFT

Hello,

I am usually though not always, experiencing the following issue:
When I attempt to connect to Wifi at a caf, the "Wireless Network
Connection" for the caf's network shows "Connected", yet there is no
Internet access. Placing the pointer over the Connection icon in the
Notification Area displays:
"Unidentified Network No Internet Access".
(The network in question always has its SSID shown in the Wireless Network
Connection list.)
This issue occurs whether I am running only the Windows firewall, or alternatively
try only running the firewall that I prefer which is Comodo.
For antivirus I have Avast Free (with its "web shield"
not installed) and so far as this issue is concerned it makes no difference if I
disable Avast.
When this issue occurs, there are often other customers in the
caf connected to the caf wifi and also using the Internet.
I have to ask the caf to:
reset,
or turn off and then turn back on,
or remove the power plug,
for their router, 
yet other customers do not have to do this to get Internet connection!
This is the issue at whatever caf, to whose Wifi I attempt to connect.
My computer has an up-to-date network adapter update!

Please help with a solution to this issue.

By default, the Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client is installed on a Windows XP Professional computer. The Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client starts the Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) Discovery service, that listens on port 1900 for NOTIFY directives. NOTIFY directives are messages that advertise the availability of UPnP-capable devices on the network. If you do not require the functionality of the Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client, you can remove the client from your computer. Doing so can help lower the risk of Internet-based attacks to port 1900 on your computer.

Running XP on 2 computers. Have them connected by a router. I set the router IP to 192.168.3.1 Everything connects great! When I connect to a wireless network, it all connects, but doesn't work ("connection timed out" or "Page not found" errors. The wire connection shows an IP of 192.168.2.1. If I disable my Local Area Network, the internet connects perfectly. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN USE MY LOCAL AREA NETWORK AND THE WIRELESS CONNECTION AT THE SAME TIME! Frustrating to the max! Any network specialists out there who can tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Hello Serg, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sometimes a simple restart of the PC will sort the network icon for you.

If not, then a quick disable and enable of the wireless network usually will toggle it back with the correct icon.

Hi everyone,

Got a problem that I've searced and searched through this website and tried all the posted solutions but I still my problem persists.

In a nutshell:
A month ago all was good on my laptop. However, recently, WZC cannot find any wireless networks in range. The dumb thing is that I am connected and my icon tray says I am. WZC just cant see any of them?! THe other thing is that I can only connect after rebooting my computer. I cant reconnect to a wireless network if I get disconnected and I cant change networks if I wanted to. Also, if I try to repair my connection, my comp cannot connect to the wireless connection I just disconnected from.

I don't have any other utility managing my wireless connection since my laptop came with all the necessary built-in's and I never neeeded a plug-in wireless card or anything like that. I've checked my services and all the automatic ones are started and i've started a number of the "manual" ones as well. I even stopped most of my processes from the task manager save 19 of the more critical ones and still, my WZC cannot find a wireless networks in range!?!

Anyone have any clue what is going on with my laptop? I also removed all my McAfee software as someone suggested. Pls Help.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, so currently i have a problem, every time i click on a launcher this message appears "The drive or network connection that the shortcut 'Planetside 2.lnk' refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again". (please refer to the attachment to see the message for yourself)

The "C:" drives usually contain necessary programs for a standard computer, and the "D:" drives has all my games (planetside 2 is one of them), work, music and so on. After seeing that message above appear for the first time today, i also realised that my "D:" has also disappear (completelt vanished), so basically every shortcut that is source from that drive is not working.

Some time ago the mother-board ethernet card on my Dell Dimension 8400 failed, so I fitted a PCI card, and all was well: The failed card was Broadcom NetExtreme 57xx. The PCI one is Realtek RL8139. I got back onto the web, even though one of the (now two icons) in the system tray has a red cross, and all seemed well.

Recently I wanted to set up a home network with a wireless laptop, and though both machines seem to see each other I cannot connect the PC to the LAN to share files. The Ethernet icon in the tray has a red cross, and gives the pop-up "Not Connected - no connections are available". The Network and Sharing Centre will not let me connect, apparently because it thinks I am connected to a public network, which I cannot change to work or home. but it also has a red cross on the PC to Internet connection. If I run the troubleshooter, it cannot find and fix any problems. In the security settings app, I have set the radio buttons to be able to change the status of networks, and to rename them. If I try to connect from the laptop to the PC, I am asked for a network ID and password, but there is nowhere for me to set this up. I have a wireless dongle, but this gives the same symptoms. I am able to connect to a wireless printer (ethernet cable to router, then wireless to the printer).

I have tried many things from various help sites, always making sure I have Administrator privileges. I don't know whether the problem is that the PC only sees the faulty modem... Read more

My network list service is started and my vista is fully up-to-date. the icon even shows the little globe indicating a connection.

also upon trying to view "network map" I get the message, Windows cannot create the network map because the networks connection type is public and I need to change it to "private" in the network and sharing center - which tells me I am not connected to any networks..

I've just downloaded the latest version of Picasa.Everything is working
fine except for the web album feature.Despite having an internet
connection on already I disappointingly get an error message...."You
must have an internet connection to use this feature".I can use other
features of Picasa2.5 like "BlogThis!".

What should I do?

Please help....
 

A:Picasa2.5 Beta shows "You must have an internet connection"...

Hiya

Looking at the program, it's still a beta format, which usually means it may have some bugs or problems still. However, readinga bit further, it says this:

The latest Beta version includes Web Albums (along with other improvements), but requires that you request an account from Google. Click to expand...

http://www.techspot.com/downloads/2836-picasa-beta.html

Do you have a Google account? Also, which build do you have, as 32.71 fixed the following:

# We fixed a couple of bugs with uploading to Picasa Web Albums- Picasa was crashing in some cases, and there was also a problem with detecting if a user was online.

Hello Jorge, This is a problem only when the profile is set to public? You might go into network and sharing center>advanced sharing settings and change those to discover the network and turn on file/printer sharing

Hello Im using HP pavilion tx2000 notebook pc entertainment.

i don't know what exactly happen when suddenly my Wireless Network Connection ICON was gone that's why i can't connect to wifi. but my wifi is already turn on. even my network adapter its not showing.

here's some image


 

A:Can't find 'Wireless Network Connection" icon on windows 7

have a look and see if its disabled in the bios

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enabled in Bios / Setup
as the PC starts you should be told how to enter the bios / Setup - one of the F keys usually F2, F10, F11 or del key is often used
MAKE SURE you DO NOT change any settings and look to see if there is a setting for the wireless or WLAN
if its disabled change it to enabled
if its enabled - then exit without saving
if you cant find a setting then exit without saving

------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Try reseating the wireless adapter

If the adapter is easily accessible, usually through a cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Remove and reinsert it carefully and firmly to make sure it is not loose.
Then remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion.
At the same time check to make sure the antenna leads are securely attached.
Note: This is not taking the machine apart. We do not recommend removing the keyboard when that is necessary to find the wireless.

A:My wireless network shows "limited connectivity" but has good signal,

It looks like you have a possibly good ethernet connection through a broadband modem. Are you having trouble with this connection?

We cannot help with your attempts to connect to a neighbor's network because you are violating the law and/or the neighbor is violating the terms of service of his ISP.

We have a Belkin router hooked up to our desktop and cable modem, and two laptops using that wireless connection. As of tonight, all our computers are failing to make this connection. I'm online now thanks to an unsecured connection I was able to hook into.

The icon in the lower right of the screen tells us, "Signal Strength: Excellent; Status: Connected." What could possibly be going wrong?

This isn't a problem with Wireless Zero Configuration, incidentally; my wife had that problem in the past, but that isn't it. Our three computers all insist we're connected just fine, yet no websites will come up on any of them.

Any theories? How could I even know where to begin?

Thanks.

Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 with Windows XP Home operating system. There is a built in Dell Wireless 1395 802.11g Mini Card that came with the computer. I recently got a virus and had to reboot my computer. The problem is I can no longer find my wireless internet system. When I go to Control Panel>Internet Connections there isn't a "Wireless Internet Connection" option.
The other thing is, I can't use the Wireless Internet Setup Wizard because I don't have my own wireless provider (I use my computer at school to connect to the free campus-wide wireless internet).
Please Help.
Thanks!

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me. I'm not the world's greatest computer girl but I know enough to be good at following directions

I have Comcast internet including a modem and router, both installed by the company around 6 months ago (details below). A few times recently, I will suddenly lose connectivity. My laptop wireless connection shows that I am connected but "No Internet Connection." Laptop browsers, as well as my consoles (so I know it's not just the PC) all show DNS errors.

RCA modem
Model DCM425
MAC 001E69165148

Netgear wireless router
MAC A021B796DCE0
Of course it seems to happen on Friday afternoons when I get home from work, requiring a service visit on Sunday at the earliest, and resulting in potential service charges and (WORST) a whole weekend with no internet.

I've spoken to multiple Comcast reps and all they do is push a new signal to the box. When that doesn't work, it seems they just want to get me off the phone asap, and schedule a service call. Last time, the guy came to my house, and ended up solving it by unplugging everything. He said to try this and "pray." Well I've tried to no avail. I'm piggybacking on someone else's connection now and hoping they don't kick me off before my conference calls (and gaming <_<) this weekend.

I'll be eternally grateful if someone can help me. Let me know any info I can provide.

Thanks!!

Hi! I connect my computer to the internet via a TP-Link router using an ethernet cable. When I turn the router on, I receive internet access, and it works fine. After a short period of time, I can't open any website, although the LAN connection status in my Windows XP SP3 is "connected"! When that happens, the LAN LED on the router is flashing while it lights without flashing in the natural situations!
**** NOTE: I have a laptop connected to the router wirelessly, and the internet works fine in it.
I hope to get fast response!
Thanks previously!

In my task bar over the internet icon there is a red X. Typically this means I do not have internet. However, I know I have internet because I am leaving this post.

When I look at my internet map there is also an "X" in the path to the internet (The globe/planet).

When I look at my full internet map there is a "Switch". What is that? I've not seen it. I recently added an Ipad to the network. I also have a tablet and Xbox which are wireless. They are all off.

I typically use a VPN. But, I have never noticed the "switch". Could this be the VPN giving me errors? While I do not use it, I have been looking into running a TOR relay network. But, I have been passively been looking at this idea for months. Other than download and install the TOR software from their site. I have not used it other than to check to see if it was functional. I have not made and intentional changes on my computer. Both TOR and the VPN have been functional for months.

Today is the first time I ever had an issue of this nature.

(Yes, I know I have an update, I updated after I took the screen shot. Daddy is my main computer) Win 7 64 bit all up to date.) I am removing and readding the snips right now.

A:Full Network Map shows a "switch"? I did not add intentionally

Hello,
I have a Dell Vostro 1720 with Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN. Yesterday, my wireless network at home stopped working. In Wireless Network Connections, it says "Limited access". I'm not sending or receiving any packets, but my wireless connection is strong. When I troubleshoot the problem, it says that there might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter. I updated the driver and there are no caution signs in the device manager. I made sure I didn't have an AVG connection under Networking Properties as suggested elsewhere. I even tried manually configuring the IPv4 properties. I'm not sure what else to try at this point. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi all,

Sorry to repeat a question I see a lot of instances of, but none of those seem to be addressing my problem correctly.

I have not done anything new to my computer in recent days, so this problem has caught me off guard (I see most instances of this problem come after upgrading to Windows 7, I have had Win 7 installed for a while now).

Here is a summary of my problem:
1) My computer recently got stuck on the "Starting Windows Screen." So I manually held the power button to reboot.
2) On reboot, it said there was a need to run a startup repair, which I did. Everything checked fine, except for the last one which said "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted," which it claimed to have successfully fixed.
3) After rebooting from repair, the system gets stuck on "Starting Windows Screen" for a good 10-15 minutes, after which it runs a registry check. After it completes that I get hopeful -- but the screen then gets stuck on an all black screen with just the mouse cursor and nothing more.
4) Additional note: Attempting to start the computer on "safe mode" leads safe mode startup to become stalled on "DRIVERS\CLASSPNP.SYS"
5) The lastest attempt to repair yielded this message: "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

A:Stuck on "Starting Windows", Repair Shows "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted"

Hi Stan, Hopefully I can help you out....or at least lead you in the right direction. From my experience, the symptoms you are suggesting sound like perhaps a dying Hard drive.

1. Do you have the windows 7 boot disks that came with your computer or when you bought the Operating System? If so, you could try and insert one of those and boot from it, and attempt to repair the installation. (this won't affect your data, only the windows system files).

2. If that doesn't fix it, you could try a fresh reinstall of windows 7, and see if that works.

3. If neither of those work, its likely that because of the fact that when windows is repairing itself, it is generally putting copies of its system files in the same physical location on your disk. Because your disk is obviously not completely dead, ie....its still loading to the windows 7 startup screen, its just copying files to the bad sectors on your hard drive and gets stuck when loading. This is especially my guess because you said Safe mode is having same problems, even after attempting to repair. In the past, I've tried and salvage a disk by reformatting it and only leaving on partitions which do not contain the bad clusters. This takes some time, and some guess work.....and really this is only a "bandaid" fix because once the disk has bad clusters, its only a matter of time before these things give out. You wouldn't want to trust your important data on it anyways....

I hope this leads you in ... Read more

This just happened out of nowhere yesterday morning. My roommate was using her laptop with no issues until suddenly the connection cut out. She tried reconnecting, but had no luck so she waited, still no signal. She was able to see our network name but it would not allow her to connect to it. Same thing when I tried my laptop. I could see it scanning wi-fi and showed available connections including our own, but it wouldn't let me connect.

The desktop in our home office has internet. The modem is showing all the proper lights flashing, indicating there is ethernet, DSL and internet.

When we open our laptops and get a signal even for a brief moment, it kills the connection on the desktop and all lights on the modem go off, except the power light which starts flashing slowly. Totally loses connection. As soon as we close the laptop, the connection comes back on the desktop.

I noticed that the icon in the tray that indicates connectivity (the two computer monitors flashing blue back and forth) looks different than normal. There is no little globe in front of them, there are just two monitors and there is usually a globe showing internet access. So I clicked it and it says we're connected to "Network 7" Access: local. So I took a screen shot of this.

What is going on, can someone help me out? I have no idea what to do but we need internet on the laptops. If you need any more information from me, feel free to ask! Thanks!

Hi everyone,

It seems to me that everyone on the internet had this problem while using wireless internet, but I have this issue with cable.

So, I'm using Window 7 32 bit, and my problem is, that after a reboot, my net stopped working, and I get this message on the Windows system tray. I'm using a router with 3 other computers with working connection. It neither works on that PC if I directly plug the modem in. If I go into the adapter settings, I can see that I'm connected, but if I watch the status of the connection, there is sent data, but it's not receiving any. It also says that there's no active IPv4, nor IPv6 connection (they are set to automatically assign addresses, and the other computers on the network are using only IPv4, guess IPv6 is not supported). I tried deactivating the IPv6, but it didn't work. I scanned for viruses, malwares, had some hits, deleted them, but it didn't solve the problem. I even uninstalled every firewall, and turned on the Windows Firewall. I reinstalled the network driver, with no luck at all. I tried using programs like WinSockFix and Microsoft FixIt, and commands like netsh winsock reset catalog, netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log, netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log, netsh interface ipv4 install, they didn't work either.

Apart from the try with WinSockFix, I don't use any 3rd party network manager.

Any ideas?
