Description Lubomir Rintel 2016-11-11 18:29:43 UTC
We currently do only global connection-checks.

It would be nice if we could do a connection check on a newly activated device only while we are connected.

We could use the result to adjust the route metric, to prioritize devices that actually are connected to the Internet.
