Description Daniel Qarras 2008-09-28 04:41:28 EDT
Description of problem:
Not really a problem but a minor feature proposal:

When connected with GPRS and selecting "Connection Information" from nm-applet, these fields show the following, incomplete information:

Hardware Address: <empty>
Speed: unknown
Security: unknown

If possible, perhaps those fields could be populated with real information? Thanks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2008-10-19 22:56:31 EDT
Yeah, they should get populated, but that probably won't be able to happen until after 0.7 when we can use ModemManager to get better information out of the card.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

This minor issue is still present in F11ß (as expected, just adjusting the version correctly here).
Comment 5 Daniel Qarras 2009-12-04 15:13:52 EST
This minor issue is still present in F12 (as probably expected).
Comment 6 Daniel Qarras 2010-04-23 15:21:43 EDT
This minor issue is still present also with the latest ModemManager. I connected my phone to my laptop with a USB cable and Connection Information says:

Interface: GSM (ttyACM0)
Hardware Address:
Driver: cdc_acm
Speed: Unknown
Security: Unknown

My phone showed perfect network connectivity (all 6 bars) but NM showed only 2 out of 4 bars. Also, my phone showed that it was connected using Edge (not the plain old GSM), not sure should this have been reported.

All in all, this is very minor issue but I'm just reporting. Please free to handle this report as you like.
Comment 7 Dan Winship 2012-05-08 09:05:42 EDT
still a problem?
Comment 8 Daniel Qarras 2012-06-17 12:15:23 EDT
I think this bug can be closed, no such empty field with F17/GNOME3 anymore (information is not there but seems like it's unavailable for all connection types also). Thanks.
Comment 9 Dan Winship 2012-06-18 09:16:42 EDT
ok, closing then
