Re: nm-applet shows wrong state at boot

I agree that my solution is not a proper solution. My point was that it shows that the problem is a timing issue. NM has gotten so quick to make a wired connection at boot, that it sometimes (fast dhcp transaction) leaves nm-applet in the dust. You are right, some type of query is needed. Maybe there should be a nm-applet "up/down" state that gets sent to NM.

My analysis is that on boot to wired NM reaches stage5 of activation (where the dbus change of state signal is sent) before nm-applet is up and ready to receive that signal. My solution was to change the order of nm-applet in Gnome sessions Start Programs from the value 10 to the default value of 50. Since that change, nm-applet has not once shown the no-connection icon at boot when a good connection was in fact made.

This presumes you login right away (or even automatically), so its not a
proper solution.  We should have nm-applet query the status if need be.
