Windows 7: Connections not available - but internet still working!

Connections not available - but internet still working!

Hi
I have been messing around trying to see what the minimal of services are that I can run on Windows 7. The machine is only used for connecting to the internet and office apps.
I disabled network connections and network location awareness, the icon for network connectivity in the notifications area displays as not working but Bittorrent AND Firefox still work!
Can anyone explain this for me.
Thanks
