Hey guys, i experienced this strange icon swap on my taskbar.

It went from regular Wi-Fi into what looks like an ethernet symbol which I know for sure I am not plugged into. Can someone shed light on this? Is this a bug?

Does rebooting the computer change the icon back?

 

If rebooting does not help and you have no problems connecting to Wifi disable, not uninstall, your LAN adapter in Device Manager. Does the icon change?

Rebooting reverted the icon back to the regular symbol. It took a second but I did see it change back.
