Internet access and Unidentified network no internet access?

So guys, on my network connection bar thing which shows all your connections, it says Internet Access(picture of a house) and below that it has Unidentified Network no internet access(picture of the bench). I don't know if this is a coincidence but once that Unidentified Network showed up my internet started to get really slow. So can anyone tell me to fix this or is my internet just getting slow? I have tried like those cmd ipconfig tricks and messing around with the Internet options but nothing seems to work.

Thank you, but unfortunately none of those have worked for me. My Wireless Network Connection 2 (Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter) is not connected and I don't know how to connect it. I've tried to enable it but it already is, can this be the problem? And also I haven't made recent changes to my computer
