    Network icon showing disconnected even when it is connected in Windows 7

    I have connected to the internet connection in my Windows 7 and I am able to browse through web pages too but still I just get the red cross sign in the network and it says “You are currently not connected to any networks”. What should be done for this issue? It just make me to misunderstand the connection.

    This problem comes up if the permissions are being set incorrectly in the registry. Just try to follow the below mentioned steps to make it work properly,

    STEP 1: Open the Run windows (Windows key + R).

    STEP 2: Now type in regedit -> Click ok.

    STEP 3: Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft >Windows NT> CurrentVersion >Network List

    STEP 4: Right click on the Network List folder -> Select Permissions.

    STEP 5: Select Advanced -> Remove all the permission entries which are there already.

    STEP 6: NOw Add new user and name it as “Administrator” Give “Full Control Permission”

    STEP 7: Do the same by creating two more users as “Users” and “CREATION OWNER”.

    STEP 8: Restart your computer once and connect to the network which should shows the proper status now.

    hi,

    i think you have miss understanding with network just need to check some basic thing.

    >> in windows 7 if you are connect with wifi then only it will show you as you are connected.

    >> otherwise in lan connection and all it will shows an square box and you have connected.

    >> if you are really connect and can surfing then you have to no worry about this it is just internal mistek .

    >> or just restart your windows once and you have done.

    > all the best

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........

    1.Firstly check the network slot of your computer is working finely or not.

    2.Then also check that the light near the plug of network is blinking or not.

    3.If it is not blinking then there is no network connection available.

    4.So you try to check that your server is working finely or not.

    5.If that is not your problem then the problem may be with the drivers.

    6.So you try to update the drivers and then try to connect.

    Have a nice day.........
