Ah I see the issue. One is that a connection doesn't need to have a
device associated with it, only a type. Also not all device types have
a mac address (cdma modems come to mind). If a connection doesn't have
a mac address it's good for all devices of the right type. There's
also a get_connections_by_id() so you don't need to loop.
