Windows 7: Wrong tray icon

Wrong tray icon

The icon for my network in the system tray is wrong. I am on wifi right now, and it is showing the ethernet with a red x.

How can I fix this?

Hello Lloyd,

If you haven't already, you might see if restarting the computer may fix it.

If not, then you could try resetting the notification area icons.

If still not, then deleting the network and setting it back up should.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

In addition to Brink, are you using a Wifi adapter or something, you may see if disconnecting and reconnecting that helps, that happens to me frequently.

Resetting the icons worked (resetting the adapter didn't). I didn't even have to restart my computer, just needed to open explorer back up.
