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:
- In the Windows 7 Taskbar, right-click the Local Area Network icon (seen as a little monitor with antenna).
- Select 'Open Network and Sharing Center'.
- If your LAN connection is in trouble, there will be a tiny exclamation mark icon between 'your pc', shown as (This computer), and your Network, shown as 'Unidentified network'. If your connection is fine, that icon is invisible.
- Click it.
- Your computer will begin to troubleshoot automatically. Most of the time it is successful.
