What is the little red " x " trying to tell me about my network connections???
Posted on 2006-04-28
There are several computers at my office that when "My Network Places" is accessed, a small red "x" appears on ALL of the network icons. On some of the workstations this occurs several times a week, on others, it is a constant condition. I have been told that the small red x indicated that the connection is not accessible from that particular computer. However, at no time has access been denied to any of the users. What exactly does the red x indicate and how can I get it to go away when nothing is wrong. It is not a huge deal...I would just like to be able to understand what is happening and make SURE that it is not a big deal.
