Bug Description

I have the latest 11.04 beta Natty installed. I cannot access the internet when I use my 3g dongle, unless I disable my normal network connection (eth0). So I can only use one at a time, the dongle or my ethernet.

When the ethernet is connected, the 3g dongle connects without a problem, but I dont have access to the internet. As soon as I disconnect from the ethernet, the internet works.
Am I using the latest 11.04 Natty release (14/08/2011). The 3g dongle is a huawei E1752 modem I believe.

It worked fine in 10.04LTS.

This is not a bug. If your wired network doesn't provide internet access, you should try to edit the connection's settings and check the checkbox "Use this connection only for the resources on its network", under the connection's settings, in the IPv4 tab, in the dialog that shows when you click the "Routes" button.

Changed in network-manager (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
