    What happens if you reboot or right click it and choose troubleshoot
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I've had this problem for a while but it does'nt effect the running of windows so i just leave it as it is,it can be quite handy at work if the boss is around as it looks like im not connected to there Wi-Fi.

    It is home network and it solely for understanding why its like this.

    doesn't work


    reboot doesn't work, the troubleshoot doesn't help very much

    You are probably connected via wireless and the network icon that is crossed out will be your built in lan adapter.
