Now keep in mind I just got my internet for the first time. I never even had this icon appear in my system tray, until I got my internet and found out that I had to enable the network interface on my motherboard through the bios. That is when I started seeing this icon. Although before I actually hooked up the ethernet cable the icon had an "X", saying that a cable was unplugged. I obviously know what that means. Though when I hooked up the ethernet cable and plugged it in the back, the icon started saying "Local Area Connection>>>Limited Or No Connectivity".
I can use the internet using the shorcut I have on my desktop for the broadband network connection I made manually with the help of my internet company customer service rep over the phone. Although now when I do and at all times I see two of those monitor icons in my sys tray. One has an exclamation mark that says "Local Area Connection>>>Limited Or No Connectivity", and the other is the network internet connection I have working fine.
The rep from my internet company said he could'nt help me anymore because he said this is an o/s issue. How do I correct this problem and take this away from my sys tray? He claimed that this is a common issue. I dunno I just want it away and gone. If you need to know what is listed in my network connections, or there properties let me know. The rep over the phone told me microsoft has some sort of thing that fixes it. I dunno please help!
