    The network cable disconnected icon appears when a network card is enabled but receives no signal.

    To stop the service (and remove the icon)

    Right-click the offending icon and select the option
    <Open Network Conections>

    Then find the bluetooth network icon, right-click it and select <Disable>.
    If you want to use this network later simply right-click and select <Enable>
    To find it at a future date try <Start> <Control Panel> <Network Connections>

    It would equally be possible to leave the card enabled and remove the icon, but I feel it's better to know what network connections are open and closed for basic security.

    I hope that helps.

    When you install the widcomm driver it lets you setup a bluetooth network and adds in a bluetooth network connection..... so unless you're going to use it (like to network two computers together over bluetooth instead of a normal LAN or wifi, or network with a pocketpc) then just disable it and be done.

    Right Click on "My Network Places"
    >properties
    Right Click on the specific network connection
    >properties
    In the general tab make sure the box circled below is not checked.

    I don't have my bluetooth adapter plugged in now, but it's the same box.
