Yellow warning triangle on network connection

Hello Experts, I have the yellow warning triangle on my network connection icon in the bottom right toolbar. I actually do have an internet connection. What would be causing this?

A limited connection?

Try:

(1) Resetting your router (turn it off, wait one minute, turn it on).

(2) Disable and then enable your PC's network card.

(3) Make sure you have the latest, correct, wireless card driver.

Also try resetting TCP/IP to see if that helps. Here is a Microsoft Support Article for TCP/IP Reset

Hi,

please explain the setup .If you have any ip conflict occur.differened subnet .if DHCP is enabked but your network card is set different ip range like 169.254.X.X..

so please go through it
Determine whether your network access is functioning properly (that you can reach local network resources and the Internet). If you are using a broadband Internet and Windows XP Service Pack 2, this message is often a false error report. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article 892896 for details on how to work around this error appropriately.

If your network access is non-functional. continue to the following steps.

If your computer connects to the network through a broadband router , resetting (powering off and on) the router may resolve the issue. If not using a broadband router, or if resetting your router only temporarily resolves the issue and the error message re-appears later, continue to the following steps.

If connecting to your network using Wi-Fi and using wireless security, your WEP or other security key may not be set properly. Check the wireless security configuration on your computer's network adapter and update if it necessary.

If connecting to your network using an Ethernet cable, your cable may have failed. Temporarily replace your network cable with a new one to determine whether this resolves the issue.

If using a broadband router and DHCP on your network, check your computer's IP address to verify it is valid and not a private address that starts with 169.254. An invalid address of the form 169.254.x.x signifies your computer's inability to obtain a usable IP address from your router.

To resolve DHCP configuration problems, proceed to the following steps.

Reboot your computer, router (if present) and broadband modem together, then re-test your connection.

If your connection remains non-functional, run the Windows Network Repair utility on your computer.

If your connection remains non-functional, update your router settings to change from dynamic to static IP address configuration, and set an IP address on the computer appropriately.

If your connection remains non-functional, unplug your router and connect the computer directly to your broadband modem. If this configuration is functional, contact the manufacturer of your router for additional support.

If your computer is connecting to your network directly through a broadband modem, or if your Internet access remains non-functional after following the instructions above, contact your Internet provider for support.

Sorry, I guess I should have stated what I have already tried. I have done all your recommendations already. In the warning it shows my domain name and says no internet access.  This is a thinkpad and all the other think pads are behaving the same way, the dell's and mac's are not having this problem. Thank you for the quick response.

Lenovo ThinkPads up to and including Windows 7 (but not Windows 8) come with Access Connections.

If Access Connections is there, check its setup. If you do not need it, consider uninstalling it.

I use ThinkPads exclusively and the network connections work fine.

Everything is working properly, it is just showing an error. I think that my issue is that my default gateway is on a different segment than my subnet mask. I was using DHCP, I entered this manually based on what i was given from ipconfig, minus the 4.2.2.2. I do not have Access Connections installed on this laptop, i can check the others.

Make sure the NIC is stuck on Public but rather is on HOME / WORk.

It is a domain and is set by the domain controller.

Thanks for the update on the NIC setting.

This is a ThinkPad and all the other think pads are behaving the same way, the dell's and mac's are not having this problem ... I do not have Access Connections installed on this laptop, I can check the others.

I am not sure why only ThinkPads would not connect. I use these all the time and good connections is their strong suit.

Let's go back to Access Connections because it comes with ThinkPads.

If you uninstalled Access Connections and did not delete the profiles, then the profiles could be causing problems.

Look in your wired and wireless connection properties for profiles and remove all profiles. Then set up one wired profile and test.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I have tried all the fixes, and the issue now comes and goes, I think it has to do with the satellite VPN, since it is more of an annoyance than an actual problem i am gonna leave it for now. Thank you for all of your help experts
