Thank you for your quick reply. I have found the likely cause of the problem, I have the following entry in "Ipconfig /all: Tunnel adapter isatap .cable.virginmedia.net:
Media state: Media disconnected
Then a few more lines of address etc , then it says DHCP enabled: No
Could this be what is causing the Red X ? if so , how do I fix it.
I also have another weird issue that you could maybe help me with please, I have 3 computers connected to my router, all three have gigabit adapters in them, one has Win MCE Sp3 OS, one has XP Sp3 and one has Win 7 64 bit ultimate, the two XP machines show that they are only running at 100Mb/s on the Icon in the taskbar for Network connections, the Win 7 shows 1Gb..
I don't know why when they each have a separate port on my router that they should run at different speeds, any ideas ?
My set up, I have a Virgin media Super Hub running in Modem mode, connected to this is my D-link DIR 615 Rev D router, on port 1 is my Win 7 Machine
on port 2 is my XP Mce Machine
on port 3 is my TP link gigabit 8 port switch
on port 4 is my XP machine.
Your advice will be gratefully received.Thanks.
Edit: I only have one Network adapter installed on my systems.
