New Network Card

I just got a boost in my Wifi Speed so I decided to get a new Card. I got it installed OK, the screens seem to be changing faster BUT the internet icon in the right lower corner, the cone one, has a star in it as if it is not working. What do I have to do to get the star gone from the cone? Any ideas?

Everything has got to be connected, the Wifi is working fine. It is just a glitch in the icon that I would like to correct.

I watched a lot of You Tube videos on this problem and finally found the one that corrected it. I uninstalled the Network form Device Manager and Restarted the PC. I then installed the Network and the icon is fine. Just make sure you have the Network Security Key handy before you uninstall.

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. ...
