Network Tray Icon has a yellow triangle.

Ny Network Tray Icon has a yellow triangle on it when I login to Windows, however I can still connect to the internet. All I have to do is click Internet Explorer and the triangle goes away. It is annoying to have to do that at every logon. Can anyone help me with this. I did not make any changes that I know of that would have created this problem.

It may help if you right click it and select troubleshoot, no promises though!

I think I might go into the Device manager to see if there is a problem with the network driver. It might help to uninstall the driver from device manager then restart and let Windows install the driver again.

I solved my own problem. It just dawned on me that it might have started after I did the Rename Homegroup tweak posted on this site. I restore the original key and Voila! Problem solved. Everything is now back to normal. I'm just lucky I backed up the Registry Key before I did the tweak.

Rename Homegroup is a new one on me. Sounds like that so called tweak didn't work too well. Messing with system settings or the registry hardly ever pays off in the long run.

Here's the link if you want to take a look at it but I advise not to try it.

You might want to mention to Brink that you had problems using this name changing of Homegroups tutorial.
