Network icon always with the RED X

I don't know how to remove it. But my network icon it's always with the RED X, like it has one error. And it does not appear to have any.



I'm fully connected. No errors on that.

The networks I have on my system



The one I'm using and the other one disabled. I don't know why the X red is there.

Any help?
Thanks.

You need not to edit it right now ... just want to see if the icons are proper place at first. If they are at their proper place, we are to search for alternatives .

X marked one is another icon ... a few above in the row.

So icons are right place.

Do you have multiple connections? What is the connection type ... wireless most probably ? Coz, the wired connection is not connected as shown.

If it is the situation, disabling the wired connection may work.

Otherwise, you may opt for installing the network drivers again.

I'm on a wired connection, not wireless and I have just this network, If I do one ipconfig /all it shows the same one I'm using.

One network only.

Thanks

Do you think the red X may be for the Bluetooth you have disabled?

If Archie's suggestion to reinstall the Ethernet driver doesn't help, then run SFC -SCANNOW Command since a System file is apparently malfunctioning.

To reinstall the driver, double click on Device in Dev Manager, from Driver tab select Uninstall driver, but leave Software in place. Reboot to reinstall.

What motherboard do you have? Some of them come with two built-in NICs and if you don't disable the unused one in the BIOS you'll get a notice that it's not connected. (Which it isn't.)
