Windows 7: Windows says I'm not connected when I am.

Windows says I'm not connected when I am.

So, these issues have been present for 3-4 months but i have ignored them.

First, windows says i'm not connected to the internet when i actually am.

Adressing the first issue, as seen in the screenie, i'm connected to the internet but Windows says i'm not, this is annoying and means i can't join a homegroup, the screenie shows the regular icon, wired, with the warning symbol, however i have a secure connection, please help with this as i am getting more and more annoyed.

I have attached a screenie showing the issue and i will post more if needed.

Thanks in advance.

Can you post a screen of the network adapters in sharing center and in device manger. Like this. Are you using any vpn programs on your pc like hamachi?

Go to "Manage Wireless Networks" and remove the wireless network and then add it back. Also make sure you are not running any other wireless configuration programs that may be interferring with the Windows 7 built in one.
