Correct Network Tray Icon - Requires Network and Sharing Center Open??

I have a peculiar issue where I would need to have "Network and Sharing Center" open to be able to see that my my laptop's wireless connection. I would see the signal bar and also see the dreaded red x.

Even when I have it open, I can see it refreshing each second; like its losing connection and reestablishing.

My internet connection is working and has no issues.

What can this be?

Network and Sharing Center - Open


Network and Sharing Center - Open and refreshed


Network and Sharing Center - Closed

That will probably be your Ethernet connection, not your wireless adapter, you can disable it in the bios if you don't use it.
