    If your network icon not showing correct status then you should end the Explorer.exe process and then restart your system, follow the procedure:

    > Open Task Manager by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC
    > Go to process tab
    > Click on explorer.exe under list of processes and click on End Process
    > Click to end process after confirming that you want to continue
    > Click new task(Run...) under File menu
    > Type %systemroot%\explorer.exe after creating New Task dialog box
    > Click ok

    Restart the system and check the issue again.
