PC, Windows 7 32 bit
Disparity between 2 Windows 7 machine's networks

Hi all,

I have 2 Windows 7 machines, one a PC and one a laptop. Both show identical network maps (the 2 computers and a router), yet my PC does not have 4 bars in the task bar (indicating good range?). Instead it has a "monitor" type icon with a pitchfork symbol on it. The laptop is working on a wireless signal from my router, while the PC is direct-cabled into the same router (local area connection).

Should my PC also be showing 4 bars, or is the current symbology correct?

Should I change my setup in any way?

Thanks for any help, noels
