Windows 7: WiFi Icon

23 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
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?

If this fails, I would try reinstalling your Network Drivers
