For wired connections, there isn't supposed to be a network icon in the top bar. For the missing wireless icon, can you provide the output of "journalctl --user -b"?

If there isn't supposed to be an icon for wired connections, how does one distinguish between,

connected via wired ethernet
ethernet unplugged
ethernet plugged but intentionally disabled (connected via a USB network interface)
Comment 3 Nineth 2014-08-06 06:59:39 EDT
Any comments on this? Again, if there isn't supposed to be an icon for wired connections, how does one distinguish between any of these?

connected via wired ethernet
ethernet unplugged
ethernet plugged but intentionally disabled (connected via a USB network interface)
ethernet plugged but no connection (no IP assigned/obtained)

Another problem https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1057917 compounds difficulties created by this one.
Comment 5 Christopher Beland 2014-12-29 17:28:54 EST
I see this as fixed in Fedora 21.  Do we want to close this ticket as NEXTRELEASE, or is there some intention of doing a backport?
Comment 6 Florian Müllner 2015-01-13 10:31:36 EST
Yes, the design decision to not show an icon for (connected) wired connections was reverted in GNOME 3.12, so closing as NEXTRELEASE sounds right to me.
