This is an odd one

For about a week now, my network icon has been showing the red "X". Only problem is I have complete network and internet access. All the troubleshooting sections for the network/internet come up negative. Not really an issue, just annoying not knowing why it's doing that :

What networks are listed in the network sharing center?

Do you ever turn your computer off on occasion? Don't do a restart, turn it off completely for a couple of minutes then turn it back on. Sometimes that is all that is needed to clear minor glitches that seem to appear on machines that are left on 24/7.

Well, I tried all the easy fixes like a shut down, disable/enable network adapter, etc. to no avail. Then yesterday the X was gone. Weird.

One of windows updates threw my computer into airplane mode and I had a similar icon. I went into settings and turned it off after I figured it out.
