Sometimes the router gets its settings screwed up, it may be worth resetting your router to factory settings and start again.

Believe me I know a lot about routers. I have connected to 3 different routers and still have the same problem of the icon.

I ma connected to the internet right now and i am getting that red ex on the icon

So you are able to connect and surf the internet through wifi it's just the notification icon that's improperly displaying disconnected?

Yes that is correct. I don't know what happened, it just changed one day and never went back.

Hmm...well just for the hell of it run a sfc /scannow and see if it fixes anything. If it finds nothing than try uninstalling the wifi and reinstall with the latest drivers from the wifi brands site. Then report back.

Ok I did that and it said this:
"Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

The system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot." I attached the log file in a zip because of the log file size limit on here.
