Description Matěj Cepl 2012-04-17 14:42:41 UTC
Description of problem:
I've came to the office and connected my notebook to the Ethernet wired connection. I don't recall I would ever click on the one particular AP, but I get now periodically (every minute or so) password prompt for that wifi. Although I have many many other wifi's around (the office is in the center of Prague), NM still asks only about this one.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
Actual results:
being asked for wifi, even though connected via wired connection
constantly being prompt for wifi which I don't want

Expected results:
1) when on wired connection, don't try wifi at all
2) when wifi connection is once rejected, don't try to automatically connect to it.

I also hit the issues.

In my wireless lists, there are lots of wifi options, but when I try to connect one, it failed without any responds, it should pop up a box to require the wifi's password.
also I try to do it in 'Network Setting', but whatever I choose which in 'Network Name' combobox, it always empty or 'Other...'.

my NM version is the same, but os is the latest rhel7
[root@zhouping zliu]# rpm -q NetworkManager
