Windows Vista network icon in system tray: Connection Status: Unknown
Posted on 2009-07-13
I'm running Windows Visat Ultimate 64-bit. The network Icon in the system tray has a red 'x' it, but I still network connectivity and Internet access. I'd like to fix the problem because it's a real pain.
When I hover the mouse over the icon the balloon states "Connection status: Unknown The dependency service or group failed to start"
I've tried a few suggestions that were recommended online but I've had no success. This appears to be a problem many people have run into, but there appears to be no clear solution.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
