XPS L702 wireless icon in task bar does not change

Hello.  I am able to connect to the internet wireless.  The wireless icon does it't thing.  The blue dot rotates and moves about but instead of showing a connection, just the signal bars showing, it shows a landline connection with a red X over it.  This happened after one of those many Windows updates.  I know I could try a reset to an earlier boot however, I made too many changes, installs and such that I don't want to loose any of it.  There has to be a workaround for this lousy problem.  I though of perhaps deleating my wireless connection and reinstalling it from the modem on up to the router.  I just don't want to  keep digging a hole!  Ya know what, I relly miss my apple computer which I fianlly gave up on because the price was overwhelming.  Thanks for any help.  Rich

Rich,

 

What virus program and firewall are you using?

 

Can you run Finding System Information REMOVE YOUR PRODUCT ID and REGISTERED OWNER, if using XP, run an ipconfig /all log and post it back here.

Rich,

 

This will get you to Nortons firewall settings.

 

Providing Finding System Information REMOVING YOUR PRODUCT ID AND REGISTER OWNER and/or an ipconfig /all log can help to provide information about your wireless adapter and it's connection.
