  • Milestone changed from 0.88 to 0.90
  • Severity changed from Unspecified to Major

Pushing out to 0.90, but seems like work is needed on this given how some of the pilot classes are likely set-up. I've seen some chatter on 'disconnect from wireless' but not sure where it's at (that option was visible in UI but never hooked up to working code).

Would be nice if someone could investigate whether NetworkManager (the upstream component Sugar relies on for the actual work) needs to be fixed or whether we need to tweak something inside Sugar.

According to Gnome#609794, NetworkManager should already prefer the wired connection for the default route (i.e. for most traffic).

  • Resolution set to obsolete
  • Status changed from new to closed

Personal experience shows that this is already the case with current versions of NetworkManager. Please reopen with precise information for reproducing the issue if you encounter it again.
