Wireless network connection shows not connected

by reddygk / February 27, 2008 12:49 AM PST

I have Verizon DSL and using Belkin wireless router. On my hp t4400 tablet, wireless network connection shows as not connected. But it is connecting to internet. Ipconfig shows ip address from my network. I am wondering how come it is possible?

I just showed someone this.

They had mistaken the ethernet disconnected message for their wifi connection. Nothing was busted except our lack of support for such products. (no classes, clueless sales, etc.)

ipconfig shows more than one IP addresses - which one ? What happens if you type in that IP address at your browser ?
