As shown below my task bar icon and the connection in the connection list almost always shows a red X but I can still access the internet and other computers. This happens with all three of the computers on the network. If I unplug the router for a few minutes and plug it back in, the displays are normal but then go back to the red X after a few minutes. As can see in the images, hovering over the connection and the top of the connection list shows that the connection is fine but when I click on the connection, it shows the settings on the computer do not . My router is a D-link DIR-601. I am using WPA2 mode. Any ideas?Red X view 1Red X view 2Computer network properties 3 router settings
