Re: Auto Connect through NetworkManager

Hi sanjeev,
g_signal_emit_by_name (device, "state-changed", state, old_state,  0);
g_signal_emit_by_name (device, "state-changed", state, old_state,  reason);
in function src/nm-device.c nm_device_state_changed(). This is why you always receive reason 0. After change, you should receive the correct reason.

Hi Dan,
     If user want to GSM auto connect, but not always want to auto connect e.g. user disconnect manually,  The current networkmanager do not act like this.
    Now when click the disconnect , the device will reconnect again. This behavior is a little strange I think.
      It is better if the auto connect occur when system up, network not available(e.g. unplug the net plug). But when user disconnect manually, do not auto connect.

That would imply you want to uncheck "Connect automatically", because
you don't actually want the connection to be automatically activated
when its available.

Instead, on resume you want NM to re-activate connections that were
active when the system went to sleep (as long as that connection is
available).  Does that sound right?
