Bug Description

If connected to only the ethernet connection, instead of picking the current AP, connect_wireless tries to find the first one by name.

The names are saved as "Auto <SSID>" so tries to find "Auto" instead of the name

This is what it does now:

conn=$(nmcli -t -f NAME,TYPE con list | grep wireless | head -n 1 | awk '{print $1}')

Can you try the linked branch? It makes the whole thing use the uuid instead (hopefully)
