NM: failover from wired connection
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
When NetworkManager attempts to make a connection via a wired adaptor
and fails for whatever reason, it tells you and gives up. Maybe it
should either retry that connection or failover to something else. Or
maybe the "sorry, I can't connect" dialog should be a "Sorry, I can't
connect - should I retry the same thing, try another connection, or
just give up?" dialog.
This probably happens with wireless connections, too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Hmm, we disable wired networks that don't have links in the menu now
(don't know if that's in Rawhide or only in CVS.) I also don't
actually complain about failed network switches anymore because I
changed the architecture a bit and it needs a rework.
