Hey demolitionma,
The yellow star that you had on the top of your wifi signal bars means that either a driver is missing or the hardware is down. so what you got to do in this case, is to check that your device manager and check if the Networks Adapters'drivers are installed, otherwise you need to install the driver . and you may want to check your firewall because it can block your internet connection too.
And from my point, i think if you are sitting far from the access point, that could be a reason to get a low internet connection or no connection at all, and in this case you will see the yellow star on top of your wifi signal bars.
