Wireless network connects and works fine, but doesnt show up on the network manager


I connect to my wireless network and the internet works fine.
It just shows the icon of no connections, and it kinda bugs me :s
I tried changing the icons, didnt work, turned network connections off and on, did other various things, nothing works. Its just bugging me.. One thing worth mentioning...
when you right click the icon, it doesnt show my network, but it does have the disconnect button availible to click.

Wired Connection
(disconnect)
Wireless Connection
Disconnect

(something) means I cant click it


Its weird, maybe a bug in my installation?

I've got the same problem; it doesn't happen all the time and it does bug me. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04; what distro are you using?
