I'm new here so go easy on me.
I had a problem that cropped up on me after downloading an update. Update is now deleted.
I have 2 PC's connected on a LAN 1 (Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC#2)
Everything seems to work fine on both computers.
The problem is on the main comp. I get an error icon in the task bar. It is 2 monitors with a red X through them. Hovering the mouse over this says 'Local Area Connection, A network cable is Unplugged'
I checked several times and this is not the case. Going into 'Network Connections' reveals the same thing.
It also shows that LAN 1 is connected.
I have tried to delete this several times but it just comes back.
Is this just a nuisance or something to worry about?
How do I get rid of it?
Info; I have a Power Spec PC running WinXP at 2Ghz with a Pentium 4 ht chip set.
The network is DSL run through a Belkin hardwired router and a SpeedStream modem.
