task tray icon for wireless LAN on x61s

I accidentally deleted the "how many bars?" wireless indicator in my task tray (XP and the laptop is ~2 years old). I can't find out how to restore it. What really worries me is that many of the names of what should be the usual icons (you know, Windows messenger, Symantec AV, Thinkpad access connections) are fine in the 'properties > customize > three choices: hide when inactive, always on, or always hide" routine, but several have the wrong names. E.g., the little wireless bars (green when excellent connection) icon that I want to restore is called "Adobe PDF". That is not right. How do I fix my task tray icons?

Thanks

Open Access Connections
Select the Configure Menu
Select Global Settings
Select the Notification Tab
Check "Show wireless status icon in task tray"
Select OK and close Access Connections

If it is already checked, uncheck it, select OK then check it and select OK

Worked great - thanks for helping me find the control!!

My icon list still has incorrect pairings in the control panel > taskbar list. I probably need to update my Access Connections software? or my Taskbar software??
