    Why is it that on some wifi systems like the one at my home shows a succesful connection yet does not highlight the wifi icon and show a true connection to the service? On other networks it connects fine.

    I do not know the answer to your question but here is my experience.
    When at Starbucks I turn on wifi and change the browser to hotspot. The login screen appears and is working at wifi speed even though my wifi icon is still grey. I know this to be wifi because regular browsing is barely usable at that location. After a minute or so the icon turns white but I have been using wifi all along.

    At home I have to wait until the wifi icon turns white to browse using wifi.
