Preferred Solution: wireless network icon not showing up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Open wireless network connection properties and there you will see option 'show icon when connected'. Tick it right and restart the connection.

I've tried everything to get it back. In my network connections, it only shows my local area connection. I can't connect to a wireless network, and my wifi light on my keyboard isn't even lit.
I don't have any switches or buttons on my keyboard either that would allow me to enable or disable wireless internet.
I do have a wireless card built into my computer, and I have been able to connect to wireless networks for the three years that I've owned this laptop. It basically just stopped working a few weeks ago.
By the way, it's Windows XP. Anyone have any idea how to get my Wifi back?

What is listed under Network Adapters in Device Manager? What, if any, warnings or errors are anywhere in Device Manager?

What is the brand and model of your laptop?

Welcome to SF,

Check the browser's settings, remove or uncheck any proxy settings if found.

Any Security Software installed - McAfee, Norton or similar?

If you are using any 3rd party utility manager to wireless connect, disable the WLAN Auto Config for Vista/Win7 from Control Panel's Services. Click on Start and type services.msc press enter, locate WLAN Auto Config and Disable. Otherwise, the WLAN Auto Config needs to be Started if you're using Windows WZC.

If it's still an issue please provide an ipconfig /all of your computer.
Click on Start => in run or search box type cmd press enter (run as Admin). From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results here.

A:Wireless Icon not showing up after boot, and desktop laags until it shows up

Check your MSCONFIG (start/run/msconfig/enter) go to the startup tab and this has what your XP loads on bootup. In there look at each entry and decide if you REALLY need it or not. BTW Spyware and ad-ware will put junk in there as well. Uncheck anything you don't want loading on startup and you will notice the PC starting quicker.

Be careful playing in this though as if you disable too many devices you can have other issues.

I seemed to have this problem for a long time. I am a little experienced with problems and programming, so if you could post pictures in the steps provided, it would make it easier for me!

The network icon displays a red X symbol and an ethernet cable symbol with a computer screen symbol in the background. I'm currently connected to a wireless network (on Windows 7 Home Premium x64), and the notification box shows that I'm connected to the network properly, but the icon itself shows that I'm disconnected. I have tried to fix this problem by uninstalling and re-installing some wireless adapter drivers (Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter, VirtualBox Service - I think that caused the problem, and Virtual WiFi Filter Driver), I tried to clear the icon cache in the registry, and I used the troubleshooter for the Network and Sharing Center.

I don't know what to do now. Help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have a problem with connecting my laptop wirelessly to my router(network).

Basically when I do a search for available networks in windows XP it comes up with alot of networks apart from my one. I can connect via ethernet cable but not Wirelessly, the other thing is I have three other computers that can see and connect to my network wirelessly.

I have looked in the router settings and the laptop I want to connect with has been allowed full internet access, also the show SSID option has been activated.

This has really confused me as I have no idea why I cannot see the network as the router settings seem fine and I can see other wireless networks so I know my laptop is searching properly.

Any help would be really appreciated guys .

So my computer is a Windows 7 computer, with NO wifi.

I have it plugged into my media link wireless router (which is plugged into my motorola surfboard modem)

And somehow there is a wireless network showing here or there called "virus.exe"

It has about two bars. and occasionally it disappears.

I'm wondering how in the world I could be picking up a wireless network called "virus.exe" when I'm only plugged directly into the modem, and my computer doesn't actually have wifi.

Is my computer showing all of the wifi connections received by my wireless modem? Shouldn't it be showing up as a wired connection?

It was confusing me. Seems simple but at the same time I would expect my computer to only pick up the wired connection.

appreciate the help!

A:wireless network adater not showing

Hey @Rajakar, I understand you are having you're having some trouble connecting your notebook to WiFi and I would like to help. Here is a list of steps that commonly resolve issues with wireless connectivity. First, we have a step by step guide to walk you through the troubleshooting process here: Troubleshooting Your Wireless Network and Internet Connection A second option, is to try these steps:Power cycle the network:1. Shut down your notebook.2. Unplug the power to your router.3. Unplug the power to your modem.4. Wait at least 45 seconds.5. Plug in the modem, and wait for it to come back online.6. Plug in the router, and wait for it to come back online.7. Turn on your notebook, and test your connection.Disable the Power Off option for the adapter:1. Open Device Manager. (Win Key+R > type devmgmt.msc > OK)2. Expand the Network adapters.3. Right click on the Ethernet/Wireless Adapter and click Properties.4. Click the Power Management tab.5. Remove the check mark beside Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.6. Click OK.7. Test.Reset the TCP/IP settings on your PC:1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.3. In the window that opens type "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" without quotes, and press enter.4. Restart your PC and test.It may also help to reset the winsock catalogue:1. Go to your start screen/menu and type CMD.2. Right click on the command prompt icon and chose Run as administrator.3. In the window that opens type "netsh winsock reset" without quotes, and press enter.4. Restart your PC and test.Reinstall the network adapter drivers:1. Download the drivers from here but do not run them yet.2. Go to your start screen/menu and type Device Manager.3. Expand Network adapters.4. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose Uninstall.5. Run the downloaded drivers from step 1.6. Restart your PC and test.Test an Ethernet connection:Self explanatory. Test if the issue persists on a wired connection to rule out the wireless adapter hardware so troubleshooting can be directed towards the right areas.Test another connection:Many people rule out their home network as an issue if another device is working on the same network. Networking is not that simple. Each device interacts differently with your router or modem and it is impossible to rule out settings in that device until the notebook has been tested on another network.If those three steps do not resolve the issue, try this document published by Microsoft for networking issues: Wired and wireless network problems. You can change the operating system with the drop-down in the upper-right corner of the document. The above steps are brought to you by @Great-Deku-Tree Hope this helps. If it does, please hit the Thumbs Up and Accept as Solution. Cheers,TechSurge.

A:Solved: Router is on but wireless network is not showing up

Some routers have a bug that they will give the same IP address to a device (e.g., your Xbox) that is on a bridged connection as the computer with the bridge. The reason for the bug is that when the Xbox requests an IP address the router has available the MAC Address of the computer and the Xbox, but uses only the one for the computer. Thus, with this bug the Dhcp reservation you tried (is a good idea but) will not work either. You have to assign a static IP configuration on the Xbox. First you can try a firmware update for the router (and then reset it to factory defaults) to see if that will fix the problem.

Of course, the above is all academic if we can't get the router working again. Start simple--just unplug the router for a minute or two. If that doesn't work try unplugging it for two or three hours. If still not working reset it to factory default settings. If the wireless is still not working after that it is time to replace the router.

A:Windows 8 Showing wireless network but not able to connect

I think you need to be trying this with out the Intel PROset Wireless application.

You are able to uninstall the Intel PROset application but this does i believe come bundled with the driver.

1. First up download the Driver with out the Intel software:

Windows 8:

Windows 8.1:

2. Then you will want to unstinall the Intel PROSet Wireless application from Add and remove hardware.

+ R
Types "Appwiz.cpl", click "Ok"
Then uninstall Intel PROSet

3. I then recommend you turn off automatic driver installation:
Drivers - Turn Off Automatic Driver Installation - Windows 7 Help Forums

4. install the Wireless Driver you downloaded earlier.

Give that a try and post results back.

A:Wireless network showing connected but not connecting

How did you install the bluetooth over the network or using a CD? If you could remove the driver and see if that fixes the problem. There could be a conflict with the driver and the NIC wireless driver. Best bet is to remove the NIC driver for the wirless device.. Reboot the laptop or desktop then re-install the NIC driver back or you could install the bluetooth device first then the NIC driver to see if that fixes the problem.

Or you could try to fix network protocols by flushing / purging the 3 caches.

click on start
click on run
type: cmd

type each below

nbtstat -r
netsh interface ip delete arpcache
ipconfig /flushdns

If you get an error on the last one then you have a DNS client service is not running error.

This can be fixed by typing this in the same area you had type the one above

REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache /V Start /T REG_DWORD /F /D 2

Wait for the okay then reboot the system
Login back then click on run type: cmd
type: ipconfig /flushdns this should work..

The wireless network connection button that can be reached from start, control panel, network and internet connections, network connections has dissapeared. Only the local are connection icon remains. I have a windows xp media center edition computer, and get the connection from my dad using a wireless netowrk adapter. Everyone else using using it is not having the same problem. If it helps, I think the problem started ( it happened a while ago so I'm not sure if this is why) because I may have snapped the wireless network adapter I was using in half nwhile it was connected to my computer. This may have happened before or after the button dissapeareaed. PLease help me find the icon!

This is my first post here, so I want to thank everyone for providing a great way to get support!!!

On to my question.

I recently received a new Notebook (IBM T42) at work. It has a Pentium M.

The problem is that when I access network connections there is no icon for Wireless Networks. I called the IT help desk and the guy laughed. He said that I would have to access the BIOS directory to figure this one out. He said he couldn't help me with it because tehy sell a card for $150 and I needed to buy it. But he also said I was welcome to figure it out for myself.

I accessed the bios at startup and found a couple of descriptions in the BIOS refering to "wireless". They all were "enabled".

Can anyone help me get this icon to appear so I can use my work computer at home?

Welcome to Seven Forums,

You may try a System Restore, go back a day or 2 before this occured.

If that didn't help, see if disabling then enabling your Network Adapters from Device Manager helps. Here's a general Tutorial on how to use Device Manager.

I recently re installed Windows 7 on a new hard drive. Everything went to plan and it works fine. Except now, for some reason there's a red x icon beside my wireless network (see attached pic) and I can't connect. The first time, I went to device manager, chose my wireless adapter (I use a wireless usb stick), went to advanced, and in the properties list, there was an item called "IEEE802.11H". It's value was set to disabled so I enabled it, and all began to work. However, the next day, the original problem was back, and the ieee802.11h is stil enabled.

I've tried various solutions that I saw on this forum and others such as netsh winsock etc, re-installing the wireless adapter driver.

I honestly don't know what else to do, or what could be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Can't connect to wireless network (red x icon beside it)

I'm no network expert, but a few things you might want to try if you haven't already. Reboot router. Unplug adapter and plug into different USB port. Go to your wireless router's web GUI, and check your wireless settings. See if your wireless adapter's is being given an IP and see if you can allocate it. Also, you could try to manually set your IP address by clicking on wireless signal icon to see the Wireless Network Connection > Properties > General Tab > Scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on "use the following IP address" then enter the adapter's IP (by running IPConfig to get the IP address).

Good luck.

This has been a huge computer saga I'm afraid . Okay so my VAIO computer was acting extremely slow, I bring it in to get fixed and it's a hard drive issue. They install a new hard drive, effectively wiping my computer. Instead of paying $75 for installation and $150 dollars for a new OS I get discs from a friend for Windows XP. Everything installs beautifully but not there is no Wireless network connection icon in my network places.

I looked around at the other people who are having a similar problem and went into my Device manager and sure enough there are pretty yellow question marks next to everything under other devices.

I don't think this is an entirely complex problem I'm just not entirely sure how to proceed from here. Any help would be love!

That is what happens when it thinks that it isn't connected anymore but connections are on the wireless icon and conenct to your network that is in the list (if it is there)...if not reastart the computer to be safe and see if it returns to normal

I have a PC with Windows XP which until about a month ago had wireless internet working fine. It has a linksys antenna to connect to the the wireless router on another computer. However now it won't connect to the internet. I try going into the control panel and network connections to the wireless network connection icon, but that isn't there anymore. I'm not sure if the problem is with the linksys router or what.

My HP laptop crashed due to a bad HD. I replaced the HD and installed Windows XP professional. Everything seems to work fine except I have no wireless network connection icon on the Network Connections screen - hence I can't connect to my wi-fi. Since the hardware is unchanged except for the HD, I must be missing some firmware or software - like a driver. Or possibly a bad setting in the SSID or something? I have installed SP2 and SP3. What can I do to correct this problem?

A:Missing wireless network icon

Probably what you need to do is, as you suggest, install some drivers--at least the wireless. Download them from HP's web site. Check in Device Manager to see what you are missing.

The help/support on MS says that i should go to control panel go to network connections and click on wireless network icon and click view available wireless networks. The thing is I don't have a wireless network icon to click on.

Help will be much appretiated...


A:Can't find wireless network icon

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:





Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

You may have to re-setup the wireless network connection. Sometimes cleaning up problems caused by viruses can mess up other stuff.

Once the network settings are back your network connections should reappear as you come within range. You will have to re-enter the passwords for any secure networks you use.

Hey guys,
Would really appreciate some help with this. Am running WinXP Home with SP2 installed, and using a Linksys Wireless USB adaptor.
Recently, my wireless network system tray icon has disappeared. I've looked in Connection Manager, but there's no sign of it there either.
The thing is, because I had the settings up and running for the network I connect to before the icon disappeared, WinXP will somehow connect to the network, despite showing NO signs of any connection at all.
It's frustrating, because it means that I cannot search for networks, or repair a connection. I've even tried using different wireless adaptors, but there is still no sign of the icon in the system tray or in connection manager.
Any and all help would be great!

I have a Netgear WN111 USB wireless adaptor on my PC (802.11n NIC).

It works fine with my WiFi network, but it always displays the wrong icon in the System Tray when connected. It shows the signal bars greyed out, with a yellow star on top.

I have tried a Windows update on the driver, but Windows (7 ultimate) says it's using the latest driver.

Netgear only have a Vista driver for this NIC, tried this to no avail, same problem.

I have no other NICs enabled on the box (wired Ethernet port disabled in BIOS and nothing in Device Manager).

I have googled this issue and I'm not alone (and it's not just Netgear NICs affected). However all the solutions say remove & re-install the device. Done this, and it's made no difference.

Anyone got any other ideas?

Thanks & regards,

Jock in a Frock

A:Wireless network - System Tray icon wrong

If a re-install is the fix, you may need to do a complete re-install. That is uninstall the software, then delete all the .DLL and .SYS files the uninstall leaves. Then delete the .INF and .CAT files, remove all Registry entries for this NIC. Reboot several times and double check everything is gone. You might need to check if there is a special service running for this NIC if there is you will need to disable the service, reboot, delete the registry keys, and then delete all the files for the service. I would reboot and double check again. Once you are sure it is gone.

Hi in the notification area on my task bar the wireless internet icon is displayed as a wired connection. This problem isn't huge but having the correctly icon be displayed would be nice.
Thanks in advance.

To give you an idea in case you do not know what i mean:

I am using Windows XP. Yesterday the wireless network connection icon in the task bar in the bottom right hand corner of my laptop turned to a completely black square. Today it appears normal except when I click on it to see the list of avalable wireless networks, the list doesn't appear. I am connected to the internet and am using a Linksys wireless router and I have it listed as my preferred network to which it connects automatically. I have not changes anything on my laptop and I would like to get the list of networks back.

Uninstalling device drivers, BlueSoleil and restarting did not help.

The root of the problem appears to be a non plug-and-play driver, which is unaffected by disabling/removing hardware drivers: "Virtual WiFi Filter Driver".

To fix the problem do the following:
-Open "Device Manager".
-Click on "View" and tick "Show hidden devices".
-Find and expand the "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" tree.
-Open the "Virtual WiFi Filter Driver"
-Click on the "Driver" tab and then "Stop".

After doing this, you will immediately notice how the wireless icon displays properly. You do not need to unisntall the driver, as it is a Windows service and will be re-enabled automatically.

If that does not work for you, you may want to try to stop some other of the WiFi drivers listed in the "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" list.

Thanks for the info

Hello Im using HP pavilion tx2000 notebook pc entertainment.

i don't know what exactly happen when suddenly my Wireless Network Connection ICON was gone that's why i can't connect to wifi. but my wifi is already turn on. even my network adapter its not showing.

here's some image


A:Can't find 'Wireless Network Connection" icon on windows 7

have a look and see if its disabled in the bios


Enabled in Bios / Setup
as the PC starts you should be told how to enter the bios / Setup - one of the F keys usually F2, F10, F11 or del key is often used
MAKE SURE you DO NOT change any settings and look to see if there is a setting for the wireless or WLAN
if its disabled change it to enabled
if its enabled - then exit without saving
if you cant find a setting then exit without saving



Try reseating the wireless adapter

If the adapter is easily accessible, usually through a cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Remove and reinsert it carefully and firmly to make sure it is not loose.
Then remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion.
At the same time check to make sure the antenna leads are securely attached.
Note: This is not taking the machine apart. We do not recommend removing the keyboard when that is necessary to find the wireless.

A:Dell Inspiron 1720 not connecting to Wireless network showing blue screen

Hi. . .

Glad to hear of Grad school -
Dissertation or thesis subject if I may?

The BSOD you posted has a bugcheck -

0xa (0x64, 0x2, 0x1, 0x81BA4DAE), no probable cause listed.

0xa = IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL = MS or kernel mode app accessed paged memory when it should not have (IRQL too high).

We'll get to wifi shortly - #1 right now is that you must install Vista SP1.

Please run the following to collect system info so I can help you get SP1 in. I wouldn't advise downloading it and install as there are prerequisite Windows Updates & other preps to be done.

Download Live SysInternals Autoruns from Microsoft TechNet and SAVE it to your DOCUMENTS folder. Next, download the attached zip and extract the batch file to your DESKTOP. Then go to desktop, right-click on the batch file and select Run as Administrator.

It will run for approx 5 minutes - you will see status screen. No interaction - just let it run. When finished, go to your documents folder and zip up the newly created folder named TSF_Vista_Support and attach to next post.

In the interim - please run the Vista Clean Manager -
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe above under programs | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd prompt/"DOS" screen will appear - type cleanmgr tuneup - check boxes.

Now disk defrag. Use Auslogics - download and install. Go to desktop, right-click on Auslogics icon, select Run as Administrator.

Any ? - please let me know.

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:

It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

As you can see, it's not very smooth. The white curved lines have bluish spots inside. When I first installed Windows 10 on a virtual hard disk (vhd), nvidia drivers for my gtx 760 installed automatically by Windows 10 and the icon was very smooth. Later, I had to do a fresh install of Windows 10 on a Samsung Evo SSD and this time, it didn't install my graphics card driver automatically, I had to download it from nvidia's website.

I am running Windows XP SP2 and have a problem with the webpage icon shortcut. When I go to a given program using Start > All Programs > any program with a link to their web page, the icon displayed is the default document icon %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll (1) and not the web browser icon IE or FF. I have to change these manually by finding the icon target and changing it for each program's webpage.

Is there a way to correct this where I don't have to manually change each one but where the change would apply to all program's webpage shortcuts? I would like for the webpage icons to display the FF icon.

Many thanks for any help.
