Windows 7: Icon shown no internet but connection OK

29 Jun 2018   #11

Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 (64bit)

I have a desktop with no internet modems.

Because of that, I use a 802.11n dongle that works fine.

Only problem is that the wrong icon shows. Is this area the taskbar? If not, what is it called?

How do I get it to display the correct icon? Thanks!
