Windows 7: Network indicator disconnected

Network indicator disconnected

Hi,

I have a Windows 7 Enterprise.

a few days ago my network indicator started to act funny. it always shows it's disconnected although I'm connected and online.

It doesn't matter if it's wired or wireless connection , every connection shows disconnected.

I've attached the graphic notification pictures so you'll know what I mean.

Although it doesn't causes any troubles in my work , I can never know if I'm connected or not.

Please help me.

Regards,

Nir

Click on the icon and select open network and sharing center and let us know how it looks there. I mean, the connection image.

Your computer - Server - Internet

Is there a cross before or after ur server?

Check whethr u hv updated ur wired and wireless drivers. U can do it thru DM. Once done, reboot and check (if windows updates) Issue resolved? No, follow below..

If no updates, then uninstall both devices restart and let windows install both of them automatically. Issue resolved? No, follow below..

Now we need to reset the TCP/IP stack. Follow these,

Start - All programs - Accessories - Command prompt - Right click and select RUN AS ADMIN

Enter these one at a time (or copy and paste) and hit enter after each

ipconfig /flushdns

nbtstat -R

nbtstat -RR

netsh int reset all

netsh int ip reset

netsh winsock reset. Close command prompt or type in Exit to close.

Reboot and check. Issue resolved?

Rebooting should solve it, Have you been messing with any Services lately?

Ive seen it happen on a few laptops before but rebooting solved it

Create a new user account and goto a few websites using your browser, let us know if it still occurs.
