Bug Description

After a crash, knetworkmanager started trying to connect as it thought wifi was available, but it wasn't. The current design of wifi staying off is good, but it'd be nice if knetworkmanager knew it wasn't available and didn't start trying in vain to connect.

Yikes, I wonder if this is something I can fix with kairmode or if it should be done with knetworkmangler. I will look into this.

I am not able to reproduce this Scott. If I enable airplane mode, wifi shuts off and network mangler doesn't try to do anything.

Now, this could have been a problem when the app crashed, it really didn't shut off the wifi. In other words, "Tx-Power=0 db" and not "Tx-Power=off". If Tx-Power == 0db, what was happening is that the app actually had marked the power status as None instead of off or on. I think if this was an issue, I may have cleared it up with recent updates to the code. I will mark this "Fix Committed" right now. If this continues after the new package is uploaded, then I say reopen this bad boy. Thanks!
