Windows 7: Unidentifying Network

W7 Network Manager is flaky

In that case, if you are not experiencing any network connectivity issues, I would just ignore it (the W7 Network Manager has always been flaky on my PC).

I have VMware Workstation 7 installed.

When I run a VM, the Network Notification Area icon shows an alert symbol.
The Network & Sharing window indicates that my network is completely broken.

However, the network is completely functional (i.e. my real OS and VMs can still access any network or Internet location without issue).

If your network is working, the Notification icon is irrelevant.

Here's what my so-called Network Manager is showing right now as I type this comment.

Network card name reporting incorrectly in wireless network list area
My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. ...
