Windows 7: How to auto fix network problems

Here's another good reason proving Windows 7 as the best operating system Microsoft has engineered so far. One of its features is the capability to automatically troubleshoot network problems.

Many of Windows 7 users may have not noticed that a tiny button in the Network and Sharing Center can do a great job in fixing network connectivity issues. In this tutorial, we are going to let you know the function of the 'exclamation point' icon.

Usually in a computer environment, an exclamation point means trouble. This time it could lead to a fix. Here's how:
  1. In the Windows 7 Taskbar, right-click the Local Area Network icon (seen as a little monitor with antenna).
  2. Select 'Open Network and Sharing Center'.

  3. Windows 7 Network 1
