    Above signal strength. WiFi turned off, appeared while driving.

    Any Ideas?

    I haven't seen it before, but there's another thread where it came up and they said it might be a wifi range extender:

    When there is a triangle or R above the signal strength, it means "Network roaming". I assume a house means "Home Only roaming"? Check your network settings and see if it is on Auto or Home.

    Edit: or the person's answer above.

    Interesting. It automatically connects to a range extender when in the vicinity?

    It might just mean there's one available (not that it's connected to it). I really don't know.

    I think it means you are about to be abducted by aliens.

    You're pretty close.... the graphic means your house(or town) is about to be covered under the dome. (Under the Dome)

    That means a range extender is close (within range), not that aliens are going to abduct you lol. I've never seen it pop up, but we don't have a lot of range extenders out where I live

    This makes sense as (obviously) the signal drops to almost non-existent around that hill. Much like wifi, the network is available but requires authentication for connection.
