Description Michael Angell 2008-06-17 01:47:28 UTC
Description of problem:
Mouse over Network Manager Applet shows 'wireless connection connected to 'none'
and left click applet has no connection 'none' and actual connection is not
selected (no dot in connection circle). Still able to connect!- threw actual
connection?! Clicking on actual connection will attempt to establish connection
and will either work (show the SSID name and place dot in the connection circle)
or come back as connected to 'none' and no dot next to connection, repeat until
results are correct.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Network Manager Applet 0.7.0 on Fedora with Gnome desktop

How reproducible:
 Assign non broadcast SSID to wireless network using WPA/WPA2 security. Add
wireless network to Network Manager with SSID name and passkey. Establish
working connection, restart computer, mouse over Network Manager Applet and read
connection SSID name. Left click applet and check for dot next to connection.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start computer.
2.Click wireless connection under applet.
Actual results:Non broadcast SSID shows correct name under Network Manager Applet.

Expected results:
