After W10 upgrade to 2004 my network icon shows as "disconnected" in taskbar

Is there a known solution or troubleshooting steps to this problem?
Does anyone have this problem?

I have no problem with internet at all, just this icon.
I did fresh OS install latest ISO W10 v2004, because I lost patience, the problem went away but came back after few days.

Some info that could be relevant:

OS: Windows 10
OS edition: Pro
OS version: 2004
OS build: 19041.329

Network card: Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_7B291462&REV_15
Driver date: 18.11.2019.
Driver version: 10.38.1118.2019

Check your DNS server settings. It should point to the DNS servers you are using or it should point to your router. That icon judges connectivity by that setting. ipconfig (cmd prompt) will tell you what you are using currently.

Yes good advice for DNS!

I have DNSCrypt service installed which when unable to resolve over 443 falls back to google servers port 53
My adapter only accepted localhost DNS but not fallback server.
There was no problem with this setup in v1909.

After adding secondary DNS, restarting service, restarting adapter the icon is here!
