Windows 7: Network icon always with the RED X

10 Mar 2012   #11


Hello, thank you for the replies :)

@essenbe, It was enabled before and the X was there, I disabled thinking that this was the error, but the X continues. Enabling o disabling does not change it.

@gregrocker, I tried SFC and "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."
I will try to reinstall the driver now.

@profdlp, my motherboard is one ASUS P5G41T-M LX2, there's only one NIC on it, and it's the one I'm using :)

I saw that post too, going to try this, I have the BlueSoleil Bluetooth stack installed, maybe this is the problem.
Going to check it too.

For what do you use the Bluetooth shown on your Net Adapters:

It's from the 'BlueSoleil Bluetooth', I don't used, that's why I disabled it.
