I had a network issue I sorted out, and am wondering what the following graphic means?

It appears you have more than one network and at least one of them doesn't have an internet connection.

Yes I didn't re-write the thread correctly. I'm using a VPN. I could browse un-restrictedly. Looking in the properties of each connection, one was connected, one not. However.....the map shows blues lines.

Are you saying that neither network shows an X, as in your original post?

Have you tried using the Diagnose option for each network?

The map [now] shows blues lines from computer to network(s) to internet, which is why I marked it 'solved'.

Okay. I guess that's because you connected the one that wasn't connected.

Glad you're problem is resolved.
