Not connected, but I am?

Hello Suzanne,

You may have a Service for the Network icon that is not started or disabled causing it to not report the network connection accurately. Check these services to see they are set as Started and what is next to the service below. These are the default settings.
  • Network Connections - Manual
  • Network List Service - Automatic
  • Network Location Awareness - Automatic
  • Network Store Interface Service - Automatic

Hope this helps,

Have you already tried restarting the computer to see if that may reset it?

I'm afraid that I do not know what else to suggest for this. :(

I am having a similar problem. I recently moved from WEP to WPA2/PSK/AES however no "network locations" are showing up when I connect wirelessly. The connection dialog has conflicting information.
