Windows 7: WiFi Icon

WiFi Icon

recently, I don't know why, the icon right by the clock that shows you wether you're connected to the wireless internet (I have a laptop Acer Aspire 7745G) and shows you the signal strength shows that I'm not connected (red X by the bars that show the signal strength) even though I really am connected to the internet, I can go on google, youtube, etc. Anyway to fix this?

You will lose your Network Key, so if you do not know it or it does not say on the router. Follow this.

Click Wireless, Right Click on your Network and select Properties.

A dialogue like this should open:

Click Show Characters and click Yes to the UAC Prompt:

You will now see your password:

If this fails, I would try reinstalling your Network Drivers

Wifi icon color?
More of a trivial question, but for anyone else who has the Windows 7 Ultimate RC, what color is your Wifi icon? I've saw screenshots of people who also have W7RC and their Wifi color is green.
