Windows 7: Wireless tray icon stays as "disconnected"

Wireless tray icon stays as "disconnected"

Hi, I've just upgraded to windows 7 from vista and i'm having a really annoying issue, the tray icon that shows my connection to my wireless network constantly shows up with a red "X" over it. I'm connected to the network fine and i know this even by clicking the icon and then right clicking on the connection and checking the "status" portion of the connection. Is there anything I can do to fix this, as it's annoying because i'd like to know if my wireless connection ever actually drops at some point.

I did some searching on this forum and i've uninstalled "Bonjour" and disabled and stopped the service and restarted the computer a few different times after doing this. Any help to get this resolved would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to Seven Forums, ironfist.

I get rid of the tray icon for wireless and use a gadget for wireless connectivity. You might want to try that.

If you have another ethernet jack on your pc, it's most likely showing that one. I think I just switched the jack that my router was connected to in order to get rid of the red x.
