Network Icon notification area not notifying...

Post by uncle »

The icon doesn't indicate when I have no network connection. I only know this when I try to get access to a site. Is this a known issue? Thank you

I have Windows 10, and the Network icon is not very reliable, if there is a problem with my WiFi connection, it doesn't always show that, or only with a considerable delay.

Sometimes it takes a while because often the wireless connection to the router is good. It is the router connection to the internet which is not working. Until there is some activity which tries to access the internet Windows has no information to change the status.
