wireless network icon incorrectly displayed in taskbar

Hi in the notification area on my task bar the wireless internet icon is displayed as a wired connection. This problem isn't huge but having the correctly icon be displayed would be nice.
Thanks in advance.


To give you an idea in case you do not know what i mean:
