Comment 13 for bug 295796

Your wired connection is not related to this issue. NetworkManager is smart, it always chooses the fastest connection. If there is a cable connected it will use it (no reason not to). If there is no cable it tries wifi. If no wifi it tries gsm. One can have many connections set to connect automatically, and NM will choose which connection it thinks is the best.

Setting the status back to "new" is not a good idea. The status is "incomplete" since it has yet to be confirmed by a second person. If nobody can confirm this within 59 days it it likely not to be applicable to Ubuntu in general.
