What do the W7 Network Icon Mean?

1. bars = wireless
2. bars with a gold dot = ?
3. bars with yellow triangle with ! = broken
4. Pitchfork = wired connection

I know there are others . . .. Is there a list of all of them and what they mean somewhere?

Thanks!

Hi, welcome to the forums

1. bars = Wireless connection status (signal strength from 1 - 5)
2. bars with a gold dot = Wireless connections available (not currently connected)
3. bars with yellow triangle with ! = Connect (with limited or no internet connectivity)
4. Pitchfork = wired connection
