Are you saying that you can access the internet, even though your Network icon shows the red X? if so look here:

Hello El Sa7eR,

You might see if a simple restart of the computer may be able to resolve this.

If not, then you might see if resetting the notification area system icons may help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You might see if turning off the "Network" icon, apply, then turn it back on to see if that may toggle the icon to display properly.
