Wireless Network Status Icon

Hi, I've just noticed my network status icon in the taskbar is not showing the signal strength anymore, the icon is still there but what looks to be like a little sun over the top of this?

Anyone got any idea's what this could be or how to get rid of it?

That is what happens when it thinks that it isn't connected anymore but connections are available...click on the wireless icon and conenct to your network that is in the list (if it is there)...if not reastart the computer to be safe and see if it returns to normal

Awesome that did the trick, thanks Zidane2424.
I didn't think a simple restart would fix the prob.
Any idea's what this icon means?

Get Vista network status icon back
Hi! Is there a way to get the Vista network status icon back? I love it, it's very intuitive, it's beautiful, and I think the Win7 version is poor in comparison. Thanks.
