Hi sbhargao,


Your Network icon is showing cross mark because your cable is unplugged , if this Cable is Connected you should check if the Ethernet Drivers are installed or not on your System. and then you have to check another end of this Cable is Connected or not on the Switch .

if Connected you should check the the Network Adapter if it is Enabled or Disabled . if this is Disable then you need to Enable it.

to check Network Adapter Settings follow this -:

go to CONTROL PANEL -> NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER -> click on CHANGE ADAPTER SETTINGS -> Right click on Network Adapter icon and check this Enabled or Disabled .
