Windows 7: Wifi - Connected fine but display says no signal

Wifi - Connected fine but display says no signal

Hi guys,

I'm having bit of an odd problem - i've recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate and for the most part finding it a great upgrade.

I've recently noticed that while i am connected and have internet access - with seemingly no issues, Windows is reporting No Signal, in the bottom right the strength indicator bars are gray. (i dont think it was like this when i first installed).

I downloaded a wifi signal strength desktop gadget and that reports 0%.

Is this some sort of bug or should i be worried?

I seem to have a pretty stable connection according to pingtest.net - gets a grade A, ping average 20 ish and jitter around 5...

It's just kind of annoying me a little

Cheers
Paul

Not to worry. I have it all the time especially on public wifi. Has zero effect besides annoying us.
