    Wi-fi icon replaced with Ethernet icon after Windows 10 update


    Howdy all,

    Recently I've updated my OS to the latest version, only to find that the dynamic WiFi symbol on the taskbar has been replaced with a static Ethernet icon -- despite the fact I still utilise my net card primarily over my Ethernet cord. I've tried the .reg method and deleting and recreating windows explorer, yet nothing is working.

    Chance I could get some help here?

    :)

  2. Wrong wi-fi icon?

    what if you try a simple disabling of the wifi network connection then enable it again and see if the icons change? It shows the Broadband connection as disabled anyways, so I cant think that would effect the icon status of the enabled wi-fi.

  3. Wrong wi-fi icon?

    I have my 'old' Black Panther system now connected by a wi-fi dongle.

    There isn't a networking problem here, because the pc gets online with no problem.

    However the bottom-right icon (near the clock) shows the symbol for not connected - 5 empty bars and a red cross over them.
    Mousing over the icon it says 'network - internet access' *Confused Wi-fi icon replaced with Ethernet icon after Windows 10 update :confused: And there is internet.

    Why isn't the correct icon showing up? *Wtf :wtf:
