    Hey guys

    i got a bit of a problem...for some unknown reason every time i restart my rig i get a Yellow Triangle with and exclamation mark over my network icon on the tray. Problem is, i am actually connected. Internet works just fine and i can upload, download, browse with no problem.

    Issue is, i cant get rid of it. When i run the troubleshooter it says it cannot find an issue (because there isnt really one). Problem im having is with software that checks whether or not i am online by checking with windows' status of connectivity. And since windows thinks i have no internet access i cannot use those programs.

    Ex. EA's Origin.

    i thought it may be my drivers, so i flashed my bios to the latest version, i manually installed the latest drivers for my network adapter and still nothing.

    TBH i think its a windows issue, my brother as a very similar rig with an exception of a couple diff things such as the case and videocard...but the mobo's are the same.

    Not to mention that the rig is brand new.

    i figured one of u gurus can help me out.

    if u have any questions about the issue that could help u figure this out feel free to ask i will post and answer anything i can

    Go into Device Manager, right-click on the network adapter and click uninstall, then scan for hardware changes..
