Not sure when. It's strange the internet works but you do see the red x. Under network it shows connected to nothing. And public domain. Tried so many things and still no resolve.

We have reset adapter" updated, rolled back, did the dcomcnfg. Tried so many things with no luck! Help someone anyone. I just want it gone. I cannot do a system restore because it does not have one from a few days ago... Any thoughts?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

What we had to do is remove all network settings, drivers, etc. And then reload and reinstall all of the drivers again and then it all worked. Another option is that if your computer is under warranty you can send it in. Make sure to back up first!

It was a rather confusing situation as the wifi worked even though it showed the x.
