    If you have an Ethernet cable plugged in and the internet is working then your wireless does not need to be connected.

    To answer your question, the red X is most likely mean your wireless adapter is turned off or disabled, however as T6 has mentioned it's not required if you have Ethernet, unless this is a laptop and you need wireless connectivity.
