Description Pierre Fortin 2018-02-03 20:46:37 CET
Description of problem:
when switcing between APs (SSIDs), net_applet often displays the wrong AP/SSID.  It does eventually correct itself; but haven't timed that.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: guessing about 25% of the time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. switch between available APs/SSIDs
2. watch the network-up popup; or hover over the net_applet icon

1. Network Monitor shows ESSID = HotWings
2. 'iwlist scan' does not contain G5_6529
3. G5_6529 (cellphone tethering) was last used ~9 hours earlier

This bug persists.  NetApplet still showing temporary SSID from new DSL modem.  This bug is in the Tooltip only -- other displays are correct.

Does this still present in Mageia 7 or Cauldron ?

Yes, on M7 I every now and then notice this when there is a radar alarm on my router. The wifi is cut off and starts automatically after a while, but the applet remains showing "Not connected" for some time.
I am not running M8 much, so the situation has not occured yet.
