Network Icon shows Red X

I've noticed recently that the Network Icon in the System Tray takes about 5 minutes before it indicates that the network is operational. When my modem indicators show that I am good to go, even though the Network Icon shows a Red X, I can get Online without any problems. I am wondering as to what controls the Network Icon from showing the normal operating status after the modem has all indicators running? Before this, the icon was showing a normal Network status after the modem had all LEDs illuminated. Now, it takes about 5 minutes or so. Any ideas? OS is Vista Home Premium.

Windows controls it.

If the network works, I would just ignore the stupid little red X which means nothing because it goes away in a couple of minutes.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
