The network cable disconnected icon appears when a network card is enabled but receives no signal.Originally Posted by Bobble
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"
Right Click on the specific network connection
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.
