In a LAN envirnoment, some PCs show a lock on "Local Area Connection" icon.
Here is a screen shot of the icon.
this is my situation:
1- All PCs run on winXp-SP2
2- DHCP is turned off and I have set each PC's IP (192.168.100.x - 255.255.255.0)
3- File sharing and printer sharing is working perfectly and I have no problem
to access each PC
4- Though there's a lock mark on the icon, I can open the property sheet of tcp/ip protocol
5- This lock mark doesn't show on all PCs. (Only 3 of them)
I need to know what this lock mark means and why some PCs show it and
how I can get ride of it.
Any kind of help is much appreciated.
