I have a dell computer that I use at home. I recently had an icon appear on my taskbar with 2 computers marked over with an x. It takes me to the network connections and it says  Local area connection  network cable unplugged, firewalled Intel® pro/1000 mt network connection. The other networks (2 and 3) still say connected. I dont share my network with another computer, but when the message appeared I started having a slower internet connection. I dont know what to do. ???

Please check the Ethernet cable that's connecting your PC to the network. It may have been unplugged damaged,or loosened.
