What does it mean if the wireless indicator icon on the lower right of the computer has a bright red X through it? That normally means that the wireless is not connected, but my wireless is working fine despite the red x?

When you hover your mouse over the wireless icon does it say very good signal.Perhaps it is saying limited connectivity on your wireless system.I had this once or twice and I think I right clicked the icon and selected show available connections.I clicked on my provider and it resolved it.Worth a try anyway.

Is the icon showing a single PC or is it showing two?

Now the wireless icon is not showing up at all. What's up with that?
