SP2 off the network icon

I installed SP2 on Vista Home Premium.  The installation went without a hitch, but now the wireless in the status bar icon displays an icon instead of the animated icon, he had previously disconnected. The nic has been disabled, so I tried it the reactivation and its connection to the network with the wireless connection still remaining active.  But there is no change of State. I watched ipconfig/all and both the wireless and nic show local IPv6 and network card for wireless as a local IPv4, with IPv4 internet.  Any suggestions?

Hi Kjboatright,

Welcome to the Microsoft Windows Vista forums.
Follow the instructions below to solve your problem: To reset the stack TCP/IP go to this article and either click on "Fix it for me" or follow the instructions to fix it yourself:
http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/299357 disable IPv6: try to uninstall IPv6 on all interfaces, the removal of virtual cards of IPv6 and reset the TCP/IP stack.  To remove the IPv6, go to the properties for each network adapter, and deselect the check box next to the Protocol "Internet Protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6), which will turn off, or select it and click on uninstall, which withdraw power off the computer.»  Then go into Device Manager and remove any 4to6 adapters, adapters miniport WUN or tunnel adapters.

NOTE: You should do this for each network connection.
  Disable the DHCP Broadcast Flag: Link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233 Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ ) how to back up and restore the registry in Windows
Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or some non-Microsoft DHCP servers
To resolve this issue, disable the DHCP BROADCAST flag in Windows Vista. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, type regedit in the search box, and then click regedit in the list programs.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click on continue.
Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\ {GUID}
This registry path, click the (GUID) subkey that corresponds to the card network that is connected to the network.
On the Edit menu, point to new, and then click DWORD (32-bit) value.
In the new area #1, type DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle and press ENTER.
Right-click DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle, then click on modify.
In the value data box, type 1 and then click OK.
Close the registry editor.
By setting this registry key to 1, Windows Vista's trying to get an IP address using the BROADCAST flag in DHCP Discover packets. If that fails, he will try to obtain an IP address without using the BROADCAST flag in DHCP Discover packets.

  • Network of the island so no internet access remove a yellow exclamation point in the network icon in the taskbar.

    Hi, I have 10 windows 7 Enterprise workstations connected to a Windows 2008 domain and there is no internet connectivity (this is normal) but each workstation network icon displays an exclamation point yellow because she had not any internet connection. Isn't there anyway other than hide the icon which I don't want to get the yellow exclamation point to appear.

    Thanks Simon.

    I finally found the answer. If you are running Windows server 2008 R2 edition, then you can find this policy in the strategy of Group Editor and it will be effective for your Windows 7 machines. If this is not the case, as I am on Windows server 2008 standard and then, is not an option within the Server Group Policy Editor must therefore be as a change in local policy on the workstations.

    It is found on the local computer by running gpedit.msc and looking: -.

    Local computer policy,

    Administrative templates,

    Network,

    Network connections,

    Does not display the network icon "local access only".

    Select this option enabled.

    Closing of session and immediately and this will make the yellow exclamation point icon disapear.

  • Windows 7 32-bit slow start of blue circle hangs on the network icon in the tray for 10 minutes, some programs don't load until the problem resolves.

    Hello world.

    It will be long and windy.

    I have a problem with my Dell XPS M1530.

    im going to write down the details of my question, short first. so if you want you can read my short story on my laptop and I.

    • Slow start.
    • Network at startup initialization problem.
    • Blue circle weighs on my network icon in the taskbar notification for 10 minutes or more. then she disappears with the problem that everything starts to operate correctly.
    • some startup programs do not start until the issue is resolved. (blue circle disappears) i.e. Dell touchpad, magic disc, pda.net and perhaps language bar.
    • programs that have to do with the network or the internet such as IE or center network to hang until the issue is resolved.
    • Some programs won't load if started up that the problem is solved. i.e. open office, cakewalk sonar.

    Another thing, I noticed. If I have automatic network connection configuration and the network is in range when I launch firefox I can actually serf the web regardless of the question.

    I'm not the only one having this problem, but solutions that work for some do not work for me. some of the things I've tried to understand.

    • has run msconfig to see if it is one of the start up programs or cervix causing the problem. found nothing.
    • has ran the command cmd, I forgot what's it called some thing/something else. It digitizes and restores the registers according to me. did not help
    • Used pc AVG scanner. then corrected all the errors found and the questions. did not help.
    • reinstalled the network drivers. did not help.
    • Ran startup recovery tool to fix problems at the beginning. did not help.
    • Booted up my laptop in SafeMode with network. Works very well

    Also, the problem started not with win 7 install I had it on my laptop well before the Enigma.

    im running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. as if lately, about 3 months ago, my laptop started to start slowly and be laggy when the system boots. I have no much attention at first. Since the question does not disappear on its own, I noticed that my network in the notification bar icon has a blue circle probably because its network initialization or loading something that is bound to it something as is. After about 10 minutes the issue resolves itself and everything works fine until I have reboot or restart. also if I put my laptop to sleep when I start it it works fine. I think that the time to resolve that issue got longer it is about 10 min now but it used a lot less. at least that's what I recall. In addition, I noticed a few more things. If I left click on the network icon does nothing when normally it will display network connections. If I right click on it displays troubleshooting and Open Network and Sharing Center. Troubleshooting doesn't help and returns nothing. Network and sharing Center is suspended until the problem resolves. in fact, some programs won't load until it the problem goes away like internet explore, network and sharing virtually Center almost everything what has to do with the network and also other programs that require a little more resources e.g. cakewalk Sonar. In addition, other startup programs and services such as Dell touch pad, magic disk, PDA. NEt don't start until after the problem goes away. What else... the kicker is that while the issue is to present the networks I connect to automatically are in fact very well and I have internet, even though the network is still initializing. what I mean is that if I start my portable firefox and launch (cannot use IE because he hangs up) I can go online and the serf of the web.

    Well, I am at a loss and don't know what to do next, except to format and clean install. However, people who did it until the problem was which leads me to believe that this is one of the windows updates may be.

    If someone knows how to fix this problem or can give a kind of constructive contribution, I'm all ears.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Kosmosis,

    I had the same problem, and after fishing trawl through the web to find answers, this is the most reliable solution that I found. At the very least, it will help to determine where the problem is.

    (1) reboot your computer.

    (2) go to Run--> services.msc

    (3) to sort the list by status (click the heading)

    (4) see those blocked at the 'boot '? These are your incriminated objects.

    Apparently, Windows has problems initializing services, and until he solves, or give up, he can't go the rest of the startup procedure. Different people get stuck on different things. For me, it was the 'Server' service as jams it for 20 minutes or more.

    You have 2 options:

    Right click 1)--> properties and change the Startup Type to "automatic (Delayed). This requires to load later, that hopefully allows all the rest at the end of initialization so that you can use the computer first.

    (2) read the Description of the service and see if you can find whats causing it to get stuck. In my case, 'Server' rule of network discovery, file sharing and printing. I realized that I UNPLUGGED a NAS from Buffalo, who worked as a print server as well. My windows was blocked to find a printer on a network that was no longer available. Remove the printer from devices solved the problem.

    If all else fails, you can always try to disable the service. This is probably not the best reccomendation, like its there for a reason, but it might help you to troubleshoot.

    How to repair spinning blue circle on the network icon at the start of /wake of sleep

    I get that occasionally. Never really found a "real" solution The best that works for me (in general) is to disable the device (network and sharing center - Center change the settings of the card) and then turn it on again or run the troubleshooting (right click on the network icon and "solve problems"). Usually, either one works for me, but unfortunately not always.

    Have you tried to update the drivers for the network device, this can also sometimes help.

    If you normally connect manually to your network, some argue that defining what it connects automatically helps (click on network icon - right click on your connection real connection tab - properties)

    I hope that someone may know a real difficulty.
