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
Yes... wireless shows bars, direct connect shows a square box thing.

If you put your mouse on the monitor symbol, does it pop up a little window that says "Internet Access" ... if it does then it's working.

You do have access to the internet and your file shares... Ya?
