EDIT* my apologies mods,could you delete this thread please as the problem has been resolved after numerous restarts :thumbup2:

Hi ,could anyone please help me with the following problem.

I had been experiencing problems with Windows Media Player not playing DVD's so after Googling I found a fix (which has worked) - http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/fix-dvd-play-error-windows-cannot-access-the-specified-device-windows-7/ which I then ran.

I then restarted my PC and have found that the internet connection image which is displayed in the bottom right hand corner of the screen appears to showing that I do not have any connection even though I have full connection as normal,(it usually looks like this when my router is switched off completely) - here is the screenshot

Any help would be most appreciated Thanks.

Do you think that maybe you bumped the hardware switch for your wifi? and then again, by coincidence during multiple reboots. My toddle likes to run over and hit every key on my keyboard and, usually when by the time I realize he hit the wireless disable/enable key, I have already been scratching my head and refreshed the browser over and over. Now, it is the 1st thing I check!
