#1802 closed defect (duplicate)

No way to tell Sugar not to connect to any network

Reported by: sascha_silbe Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Major Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New


If a working network connection (at least WLAN, haven't tried wired LAN) is available, Sugar will use it no matter what. Choosing disconnect on the frame device will only cause it to reconnect.
Together with a set of other misbehaviours (will file separate bugs) and the unavailability of a way to power off the WLAN device from Sugar this is very annoying. Even when not considering interactions with other bugs it's very irritating that "Disconnect" actually causes a reconnect.

For the mesh device this is even worse as it will start trying to connect directly after log-in and neither stop automatically nor offer the option to do so to the user.

Patch in #1673 will aid in solving this ticket, since choosing disconnect will prevent reconnect.

Actually, this is almost a duplicate. Review requested. ;-)
