Description Lubomir Rintel 2016-11-11 18:06:53 UTC
Whenever connecting fails we are not too good at communicating the reason; whether DHCP timed out, not able to configure LL address, bad VPN password, etc.

Let's see what can be done about this.

Comment 1 Lubomir Rintel 2017-03-28 14:02:41 UTC
Went in upstream: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=779627

Comment 4 Lubomir Rintel 2017-05-26 13:47:15 UTC
[root@belphegor NetworkManager]# nmcli c add type wifi ssid trolofon ifname '*' con-name lala
Connection 'lala' (ddee22a6-0e20-4f0a-9bd2-735de094ad62) successfully added.
[root@belphegor NetworkManager]# nmcli c up lala
Error: Connection activation failed: The Wi-Fi network could not be found
[root@belphegor NetworkManager]# 

You would get a "Error: Connection activation failed." before.

All errors do show as before and some of them are even better.
