So you can connect fine, surf the internet, etc.? If that's the case.. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Have you just tried restarting your computer a few times? I know I'll have an inaccurate wifi icon sometimes when I'm actually connected, and rebooting usually fixes it.

Hi. Serveral possibilities.

Try deleting all the saved wireless networks in: Network and Sharing Center > Manage wireless networks. Delete all saved wireless networks one by one, then try re-connecting manually to your wireless network to see if the Wi-Fi icon shows true afterwards.

Do you have any VPN or virtualization software installed, such as VirtualBox?

Check in: Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings. In addition to your LAN/Ethernet and WLAN/Wireless network adapters, do you see any icons for virtual network adapters such as a VPN adapter or other? Try uninstalling all other network adapters apart from your LAN and WLAN.

Can you provide a screenshot of the Network adapters list in Device Manager?

Okay.

In Device Manager, try disabling all other network adapters apart from the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 network adapter, and test again. Right-click and disable:

- Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network)
- Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI)
- Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter
- Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter #2
- Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller

If not already, try downloading and installing the latest driver for your Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 adapter from the Intel website:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...+1030&lang=eng

Download and install the driver only 'Wireless_16.11.0_Ds32.exe' or '
Wireless_16.11.0_Ds64.exe' depending on whether you have Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit installed. Test again afterwards.

If your Windows Firewall is enabled, try disabling it temporarily, or restore the Windows Firewall to default settings, then test again afterwards. To do this, navigate to:
Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall (or System and Security > Windows Firewall) > Turn Windows Firewall on or off.

Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall (or System and Security > Windows Firewall) > Restore defaults.
If you have 3rd party security software installed with a built Firewall feature, disable this temporarily and test again.

Check your Start Menu All Programs list, and the Programs and Features list (Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features). If you have any third party Bluetooth software, Wi-Fi management software, or VPN software, uninstall these, and test again.

Check to see if Internet Connection Sharing is enabled for your LAN and WLAN network adapters, and if enabled, disable it, and test again:

Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings > Right-click the network adapter > Properties > Sharing tab > Uncheck 'Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection' and click OK.

Hi. Did you have Virtual Box installed from the beginning, or has it just been installed?

Hi. Nah I asked if you had any virtualization software installed such as VirtualBox as virtual adapters created by Virtual Box are known to cause the same or similar issues - uninstall Virtual Box if you have installed it.
