Windows 7: Connection Bar With Sun Icon, Not Going Away

Connection Bar With Sun Icon, Not Going Away


I am having a problem with my internet I guess not to sure because I still can connect to websites and all that good stuff but I seem to have the Sun Icon on my connection bar.

Its really annoying and it wont go away. I think its been causing problems with my Skype because my Skype never use to cut out or disconnect every so often before this appeared.


ISP: Hudson Technology Solutions Hudson Technology Solutions, Inc. | Home (Its bad lol)
Broadband Connection: Dial-Up (Maybe DSL) (I don't know really cause my ISP is horrible)
Modem: (Ill add tomorrow)
Firewall: (Nothing at the moment just using windows for now)

Thanks for reading~

What does it tell you it is if you hover the cursor over it or right click the icon? What is the Hamachi Network Interface? It appears you have two active Ethernet connections, wireless inactive.

Have you installed some Sun Systems program?

The symbol just means: "not connected to any wireless network". You work wired now!!
Hamachi is for logmein VPN stuff btw.
