Have you checked the status of the Ethernet in the the "Change adapter settings"? If it is working, then there's nothing to worry about.

Sounds like your Ethernet connection is not working; when you think it is working, you are actually connected via the wifi connection.

Ethernet won't be listed with the available wireless connections; only the wireless connections show in that list.
