Internet Access icon

In the notification area, the INTERNET access icon is all white. Are the bars supposed to colored as the scale goes up. Mine are all white. How do I tell what the signal strength is?

can we change that?

Can we make the icon show the correct number of bars instead of making us believe that we are not connected to any network? Thanks,
