says im connected to my wifi network Could also be showing the Wired Ethernet connection not being connected.

Go into the control Panel, Network And Sharing Center, Manage network connections , Top left from memory locate the LAN connections.

OR easier way, click on start, type in ncpa.cpl select it, and look to see which one has the X on it.
