Suggestions To Fix Issue With Network Icon in Windows® 7
Networks connect autonomous systems through interrelated connections. The systems connected in one network can transmit files and folders. This network that you can connect to a system could be divided into two; wireless and wired network. The use of cables to connect the systems in the network is the main difference between these two network connections. The configuration of wireless network is simpler than the other one, and the chances of any issues is also less. Here, you can avoid faulty cable connection issues. Even in this case, wireless networks are not error free. The network icon in the system shows the network connection in the system. If this icon in the system is proper, you can be rest assured that the network connection is proper.
Following are some of the issues that might occur with the network icon in Windows 7 system:

Network icon issues
You might have seen various issues related to network icon in the system while connecting the system to the network. The main issue is related to the network adaptor used to connect the system to the network. If the network adaptor becomes incompatible, or it becomes damaged through any of the changes in the system settings, then some types of error messages will occur and you will fail to connect the system to the network. If the user upgrades the Operating System, the network drivers will be incompatible and thus error messages will be displayed. If the network software are affected with any of the malware in the system, those softwares would not support the network connection.
The main symptom in relation to network issues that you can see while connecting the system is the Red Cross symbol in the network icon. As usual, this symbol implies the network disconnection in the system. Even if you get the network connection properly, you might not see the network icon in the system. The next symptom that might occur is the hidden network icon. While moving the mouse over the icon, it will change into hidden state even if you haven't activated the hidden property.
The simplest way to fix this issue is through the 'Control Panel'. You can see the Adaptor Troubleshooter there by searching with that keyword. After this, you can select the 'Network Adaptor' option in the 'View all' option. The network connection in the system might have changed into the Disabled state and this might be the reason for the issue with network icon. If this is the case, you could change that state in to Enable. If this does not resolve the issue, you could try this after disabling the Network Adaptor. Sometimes, network adaptor needs resetting. If the troubleshooting process displays any of the drivers name, you need to check that driver and troubleshoot it. If all these methods fail to resolve the issue, you have to replace the adaptor in the system.
