    Red "X" through Wireless Icon Indicator

    An unusual situation: on the Taskbar, lower right corner, there is an icon (mini bar chart appearance) indicating whether my wireless internet is connected.
    When I boot, everything seems to come up fine, but the icon ultimately has a red x over the icon.

    Yet, my internet connection is fine. When I click on the icon, it says 'Not Connected' at the top of the opened window; yet my internet connection to the specific ISP shows it IS connected.

    Any idea how I can get that Red X turned off ?

    Thank you. Alan.

    Try deleting and then recreating the Wireless network connection.

    All typing errors are my own work and subject to patents pending. Except errors by the spell checker. And that has its own patients.

    I was thinking along those lines as well. My laptop has an Ethernet card, Bluetooth radio, and WiFi adapter. I can also connect through my cell phone.
