Windows 7: connected to internet, but computer says I'm not

connected to internet, but computer says I'm not

I have a slightly different problem I was hoping you could help me with. Here's a link to a printscreen of the problem.

Basically - even though I'm connected to the internet, my computer says I'm not. I'm able to browse the internet without any problems even though the icon in the right corner of my screen constantly taunts me by claiming I'm not connected. This is more annoying than anything else, but I would like to know how to change it. I have been unable to manage it myself.

Any ideas? Searching the internet tells me I'm not the only one with this problem, but I've yet to find a solution.

Hello giganemo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if disconnecting and reconnecting the wireless connection may help toggle the correct icon. If not, then see if disabling and enabled your wireless adapter in "Network Connections" may.

Hope this helps,
