After the last few updates I've noticed my Wifi Systray icon showing an exclamation point on it. This isn't just the case on this machine but two other KDE Neon computers having the same issue after the last few days regardless of which Wifi network I'll be on.

Hello,
I think this problem happened with the latest KDE Frameworks 5.68.0. As far as I have observed, the problem gets better when I do Screen Lock (Meta + L) and login again.

Same problem here. And when I hover over it, it says something like "connected with limited connectivity" .
Then after sometime it goes away, but always comes back again.

Yeah that's it. I think the problem will probably be completely resolved with the first bug fix update.

I may not be related to KDE at all. I saw this yesterday on my wired connection. I logged in to my tp-link router, and the network map that displays on its home page says that I am not connected, and that I should set my DNS servers manually. However, I was definitely connected to the internet with no visible issues.

Since I already set the router to use Cloudflare's DNS, I switched back to using automatic settings from my ISP (which uses Google's DNS). I went to bed, then to work, and now that I am back home, the exclamation point is gone. I will assume the message on the router's msp will be gone as well.
