Signal strength mismatch

Erm.... which do I trust? (see attachment) The question mark is in Comic Sans for added seriousness.

Hi mate, if there is such thing as a matter of trust, i would go the lesser. Hoever, i wouldn't put my lunch money on either. What matters is you are connected it not.

Trust the green one, it is updated via scanning for network availability.

As far as I understand it, the grey graph is based on whether or not you are connected and may include all available adapters. Sometimes if I am downloading something heavy on another pc in my home network, my grey network icon shows the circle (trying to connect); but the green one shows a good connection is AVAILABLE for me to use. It's just that my other PC (connected via LAN) is smoking all my bandwidth and confuses the grey icon; but the available wireless signal (green) is still strong.

hope this makes sense.
