    Yellow triangle over network indicator, but internet works


    Hey guys, I need your help. Yesterday I thought I'd disable a few services that some sites suggest me to do so, and I accidentaly disabled "diagnostic policy service", ever since then I have a yellow triangle over my network indicator, and it says that my network is "LIMITED". I have re-enabled the service and it runs now, but it's still the same.

    However the internet works perfectly, but Windows doesn't recognize ipv4 and ipv6 services, so I can't change my dynamic IP to static, cause it just runs troubleshooting. Sometimes it says that diagnostic policy service doesn't run, but usually it can't recognize what's the problem. I need to have static IP, and of course it's a bit annoying too, so anyone can please help me what to do? Thanks for any help.

    Can you post a screen shot of Device manager. Also post the output from the following: Open a Command Window as Administrator and enter without the quotes: "netsh wlan show all" if you are using wifi for Internet. If using Ethernet, run "Netsh lan show interfaces" (without the quotes).

    Hi. Thanks for your answer. Here is a picture of my Device Manager:

    Sorry the language is Hungarian. The adapter says #2 because I've also tried to remove the driver and reboot Windows to let it reinstall it.

    The Command window says after typing the command you wrote (I'm using Ethernet):
    "The Wired Autoconfig Service (dot3svc) is not running."

    Have you tried going back to a previous system restore point to undo the changes you made?

    I'm doing it now, thanks for the tip, will report back how if it succeeded.

    EDIT: it seems it works now, thanks for the tip, I haven't really used this function of Windows so it didn't come into my mind. Thanks once again.

    You may want to do a "sfc /scannow" (without the quotes) in a Command Window as Administrator, to check for any errors. I only use the Realtek drivers from Realtek

    What may have happened is that Windows/Microsoft Update loaded the Microsoft driver, which caused the issue.

    It's not a modem problem !
    Probably a dot3svc dependency, I guess.
