I have a HP Pavilion laptop dv6000 running Windows Vista SP2. When I hover over the 'network' icon it indicates that the computer is not connected to any network and in fact the widgets on the screen that use the Internet indicate 'Service not available'. However when I go to the 'Network and Sharing Centre' and click on 'Connect to a network' it indicates I'm connected to the wireless router with 'excellent' signal strength.


Further, when I run network diagnostics it returns with '... did not find any problems with your Internet connection.'

What firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the system?

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

[Press ENTER after each command.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Once in a while I have a similar issue with Windows 7. Never found a cause or a fix, but the issue always goes away after a Restart or two. Can't think of anything else to suggest.

Click on the link below to test the NCSI.
http://www.msftncsi.com/ncsi.txt
NCSI = Network Connectivity Status indicator.
Note the only thing to appear from this site is the text “Microsoft NCSI”

Next is to go into network connection and disable all connections except for the wireless, reboot the computer and see if the indicator works. Also in the network connection screen note if you see any connection setup as a bridge.

Besides the above the only other conflict I could think of is if you have a 3rd party wireless management system installed. This could be HP Wireless Assistant or Intel ProSet Wireless manager. If you have either one installed you could try uninstalling them and let Windows manager handle the connection information.
