Windows 7: Internet Connectivity icons got mixed

04 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Internet Connectivity icons got mixed

The Icon that shows my connection status is wrong.
e.g: when I'm disconnected it shows I have wired internet connection,
and when I have a wireless connection it shows that my internet adapter is off.
How can I restore the the original icons' behavior?

Thanks in advance for any help.

You might see if resetting the notification area icons cache may be able to help. :)

Hope this helps,
