  • Question

  • The icon on my taskbar displays a CAT5 connection with an "x" thru it for my internet connection. I use a wireless connection that normally displays a "bar" icon. How do I change the icon?

  • Hi,

    Could you please describe your issue detailed? Do you mean there is a "X" with the icon of Network and Sharing Center in taskbar?

    If it does, we would consider there is something wrong with your network. You could perform the steps below to fix it.

    1. Go to Network and Sharing Center > click "Change adapter Settings", then disable your Ethernet adapter and enable it.

    2. If it doesn't work, please reboot your PC. Download the latest driver version from the manufacturer official website and install it.

    After that, check the issue again.

    Good luck to fix it.

    Best Regards
    Simon
