I had this problem with my belkin wireless device.
It seems meaningless.
Reinstalling the app made it work right for a few days, but it just went back to doing that again.
Despite that problem it has always worked normally though.

I finally quit messing with it, as it seems to work fine either way, and you can always check signal just by hovering on it if you want.
Pretty sure it's a problem with the third party driver for the wireless causing the bad tray icon.
It does not seem to affect functionality though.
