Re-adding network manager icon to top panel is undiscoverable due to naming of notifications panel
|Ubuntu Desktop Bugs|
Binary package hint: network-manager
For a user who has lost or accidentally removed the notifications panel and wants to see the NetworkManager connection status in the top panel - the naming and icon use for the "notifications area" makes it extremely difficult to discover that this is indeed the panel widget that needs to be added. I somehow switched off this vital piece of functionality and have been left hunting for it.
Given that WIFI connectivity is such an important use case I would argue that this is a high priority issue that can be solved simply. Even as en experienced user I have had to resort to the forums / mailing lists 
- Instead of using the somewhat redundant icon with an 'i' on it - could we use the wireless connectivity icon? (I am assuming that my use case is the most common :-) )
- Can we add the word wireless or WIFI or network into the Notification panel description as it appears after you click on 'ADD TO PANEL' ? - At least it would turn up when I type in wireless or Wifi into the applet search box
Should the network manager icon by switch-on-able from other locations (preferences or administration)?
