I'm not able to see your picture at the moment as it is still being approved by a moderator, but in many cases in the past disabling IPv6 or changing your DNS servers have been known to fix that. It's a simple DNS + HTTP check that brings that icon up.

I turned off ipv6 for my nic.

 

as for DNS, I use openDNS so I'm not really sure what I would need to change.
