Misleading applet icon when connection is enabled

Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

The icon shows two monitors with black color. This indicates that the systems are powered off, thus no network activity is possible. Still "wired networking connection" is enabled.

Expected result: A different icon, maybe two monitors with _white_ background and a world globe?

Sorry, I dont understand the question exactly. Do you mean "most likely.. no interfaces configured in .."?

here is my /etc/network/interfaces:

anki@anki-desktop:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
