Bug Description

Dear friends,

It would be nice if the Connection Information window (right click on nm-applet -> "Connection Information") would keep itself up to date.

Currently, when connection is disconnected or addresses changed, etc., the datum in the Connection Information window stays the same, thus getting out of date, showing wrong information.

I think that it would be more beneficial and less confusing to have this windows always display the correct information.

Blessings,
Shahar

Marking Wishlist/Triaged. I think there is already plenty of information to take care of this...

However, the issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if you could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.
