Windows 7: Network connection tray icon display wrong image

01 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Network connection tray icon display wrong image

I am having a strange issue. I am connected, yet I see the not connected icon for wireless and wired internet:

I have restarted, cleared icon cash, ended explorer.exe and restarted it. Does not effect usage, just annoying. Does this on every network. Any ideas?

Hi there,

If this bothers you although you are connected to the network and internet you may try to uninstall/reinstall the device driver from your computer's device manager if you have not done this yet.
