Uninstall driver from device manager and restart my computer

When the computer will restart my problem is solved!!!!!!! but When the computer will restart again,

Those are two totally different things.

The top "Connected" simply tells you that you are connected to a Wireless Access Point (WAP).

1) You can be connected to a WAP and not be connected to the internet.

2) You can be connected to a WAP and be connected to the internet.

3) You can be connected to a WAP and be connected to the internet but have Windows tell you that you are not connected to the internet.

According to your first post, your situation is number 3.

The info that I linked to tells you how the Windows OS figures out that it is connected to the internet. When you surf to the first link (http://www.msftncsi.com/ncsi.txt), you should see this text:
Microsoft NCSI

If something is preventing the OS from getting to that info, then the OS will think that there is no connection to the internet.

The last thing that I could think of is downloading the latest drivers for your Wireless NIC. Then, once you download and saved to your hard drive, go to device manager and uninstall your Wireless NIC drivers. Make sure to select, "Delete driver software for this device." Then, in the device manager dialog box, click "action" and click "scan for hardware changes". Windows will then detect an unknown Network adapter device. That's when you start installing the drivers you downloaded. That maybe able to fix your WiFi icon in the system tray. Before doing the procedure above, make sure to back up all the Wireless Profiles (SSID, password, security) in a text file since they will be deleted when you delete the driver software for your Wireless NIC.

Hope this finally fixes your tray icon.

I download lastest drivers for my wireless, and install it. after restart , wireless icon is corrrect, but after restart agin, this problem come back

Dear theveterans, you say "Make sure to select, "Delete driver software for this device." "
but I can't find this item.



I think when I download ESET smart Security version 7 and update it, I have faced the problem.
***I don't have any problem with safe mode*** safe mode is safe and fast, but windows is slow.this problem stand just in windows. When Windows comes up, wireless icon is correct, and system is very slow, after 1 min wireless icon is incorrect and system is fast
