Bug Description

This page (link below) needs to be revised so that it uses the current names of the tabs and controls. For example (in 16.04) the tabs are General, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Security, IPv4 Settings, and IPv6 Settings. The page doesn't use the current name for the first three tabs but does use the current name for the last two tabs.

If a control is documented the current name of the control should (of course) be used.

Some notes on terminology: At some point "Wireless" must have been changed to "Wi-Fi" in the GUI but the desktop help wasn't changed. I briefly checked terminology outside Ubuntu. For example, Wikipedia uses "Wi-Fi" not "WiFi" or "wifi" or "wi-fi". I haven't done a global replace in the help of "wireless" to "Wi-Fi" since terms such as "wireless card" or "wireless network" seem to be widely used outside Ubuntu. I think any occurrences of "wi-fi" etc in the help should be changed to "Wi-Fi". Let's be consistent.
