Comment 8 for bug 121415

I'm still getting this at least sometimes. I don't use the killswitch very often because of that, but it seems that the behavior changes from time to time.

Before Gutsy, nm-applet would display the "disconnected" status when I killed the wireless, and automatically re-connected when I reset the switch.

Right now, it can't tell the wireless is off, it just shows the "no signal" icon. After I reset the switch it doesn't do anything, and when I try to manually reconnect it can't (it tries for a while then stops with the "No network connection"). I just noticed that iwconfig says "eth1 no wireless extensions." after on/offing the killswitch --- but eth1 is my wireless card. So it might not be nm-applet's fault.
