    I've looked and can't find what they mean. Service and WiFi still work when the exclamation point appears but can't find out what out means. Help appreciated.

    On my 1st gen Moto X the exclamation point shows it is connecting and only lasts a second or two.

    I know that with the WiFi icon, it means that you are not connected to a network. Like hotel/motel WiFi networks, where you have to sign in. Then the exclamation point disappears. Occasionally my 4G icon has an exclamation point by it too. Rarely though.

    That exclamation mark means that your device can't connect with Google servers. It's strange that it appears even when you are connected to a network. Is it still there if you switch WiFi off & on?

    I'm guessing there is a wifi network available. If you have wifi turned on but not connected to a network, pull down your notification bar and you will see the same icon.

    Let me guess - you connected a router to a device from your isp that is also a router? And the isp's router was using 192.168.0 addresses?

    Just as an explanation, whenever you place a router within another router like that, you have to change it to use a different IP address range or the packets will never leave the inside router. (Or you can change the router that you installed to bridge mode, so that it is not routing but is part of the isp's router address range.)

    It's a little complicated, and it's too bad that routers aren't designed to look for this configuration and automatically change the private IP address to something else automatically (there's no reason why that couldn't happen.)

    Optus hey? Maybe that's the problem? My Optus internet back when I lived in Perth was awful.
