    Had Windows search for updates and applied all. Icon is still good. I'm going to mark this as solved even though I do not actually know what caused the problem or what fixed the problem. Hopefully it will stay solved.
    Speculation as to what causes the problem:
    Change of a setting.
    Result of a registry tweak.
    3rd party program download.
    Who knows.

    Anyway, glad you have the WiFi icon back.

    That is what I am thinking. Something tripped the IRQ for the WiFi adapter, or a Service got screwed up. I would have rather had them remove device and driver, then see what happens when 10 reinstalls. Also we all know if there is any third party software running Wireless Zero, Bluetooth driver issue, the Airplane mode can show, but still like the OP stated, networking is still running.

    I have the same problem. Airplane Icon and popup say disconnected but I turned mode off and have full connectivity.
    I'll try an update.
