Welcome to the Seven Forums

How did you change the icon?

Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. You may need to do this up to 3 times with a reboot after each scan.

Then do Icon Cache - Rebuild

And maybe Notification Area Icons - Reset

Unplug the wired cable and see if it goes back to wireless.

If you want the icon, you unplug from the net and use wireless, only. Otherwise, you get the icon you have. You can't have it both ways.
