So, an annoying problem has cropped and is not going away. I have Windows 7 Professional x64 and the icon in the system tray that shows whether or not I am connected to the Internet has a red X through it. It appears randomly and stays for several seconds to several minutes. Thing is, when it appears, I am connected and actively using the Internet. If I click on the icon and open the Network and Sharing Center, the X disappears.
My PC is hardwired to the modem, so not a wireless connection. I have searched online for solutions, but what I have found so far always refers to a wireless connection. I have never seen this happen before until just recently; problem started two days ago.
Any ideas or solutions would be appreciated.
