Hi all, i am new here.
I am connected to the internet via the wireless network so it is definitely connected but I see an orange asterisk on the wireless icon in windows 7 instead of the usual signal strength.
I thought this icon meant that you weren't connected but there were wireless networks available.
I do have a VPN setup to my work network on the computer as well but it shows this icon irrespective of whether I am connected to the VPN or not.
It is a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop.
I swear i have seen the signal strength version in the past so lord knows what has happened to make it show this annoying orange asterisk.
