So this is a problem that I've been having for quite a while. Before anything, here are the specs of my laptop.

Acer Aspire 4339
Windows 7 Home Premium - Service Pack 1
Intel Celeron CPU P4600 Processor - 2.00GHz
2GB RAM
64-bit OS

Okay so here's my prob. (Screenshots to follow)

I am currently 100% completely connected to the internet. I can access any webpage, everything. Nothing wrong with the router we're currently using, because our Xbox & other PC runs fine on it. Also, this is the 2nd router I've connected to, so this problem persists only with the computer.

Rather hard to explain, so here are a few photos.

I have no clue why this is showing this or how to fix this, and normally I'm able to solve menial things like this...but I'm stumped. I'm definitely connected, otherwise I wouldn't be here posting and asking for help. Haha. It's affecting me because, even though I have full access to the internet, I can't do things like share folders with my network. It won't allow me to turn on network sharing, since my laptop truly and greatly believes it is not connected to the internet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)  Thanks guys!

Did you try to shutdown and and turn back on your network card manually ? Or maybe update / reinstall your drivers can maybe fix it/

that symbol means u have a limited connection. it could be ur ip is in conflict with something else, restart modem or router which ever is ur ip server. could be firewall blocking the OS checking of internet connection. could be other items. don't worry about it. heck just hide the icon.
