I have a Win7 x64 on my laptop, recently bought.
I at first didn't find any issue but now there is a prob with network connections.
When i click the Network tray Icon, a menu comes up. My default connection "Internet" has 'Connected' next to it.
But the icon shows that i am not connected. Also when i hover over the icon it says "Not connected - Connections are available. I have a VPN connection that i can't use because windows thinks i am not connected (but i am).
When I go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections this is what I see
I seriously cannot understand how one area of windows knows I am connected while one shows I am not.
I have tried disabling all other connections as seen in pic, and I have gone to "Services" and turned all the Network related ones to Automatic and restarted them, but nothing works.
