Description Vladimir Benes 2012-10-22 04:45:00 EDT
Description of problem:
when I go into wireless profile in control-center Network tool there is a button that is used for (dis)connecting to a network. After turning off wifi from gnome-shell applet this button never turns back from grayed out state. You need to go back to profiles (networks) overview and then back to profile to be able to use it again.
What is even more broken is that after connecting back to the opened profile network that profile in control-center dialog says Out of range. When I go back to overview and back everything is OK again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0.connect to a wireless network so you have a profile stored 
1.in the profile unset connect automatically (via nm-connection-editor)   
2.go into control-center Network dialog
3.go into the profile and leave the dialog open
4.in gnome-shell nm applet turn wifi off 
5.reenable wifi in the applet again
6.connect to the network via Network dialog
Actual results:
buttons greyed out. have to go to overview and back to profile to be able to connect 

Expected results:
profile state should be updated correctly

Can you retest with control-center-3.8.*, a lot has changed in a minor version update. Thanks.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2014-03-22 03:04:48 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

I haven't met this issue with control-center-3.14.4-2.el7, I think this is fixed by the rebase.
