3) What you expected to happen
I'm connected by WiFi only, not by a wired connection. I expect to see the
WiFi icon anytime while being connected to my WiFi network. Also, I expect to
see all the WiFi networks around me (at least one other network with good
reception and about 3 with bad reception).
4) What happened instead
After waking up the laptop from suspend, there appears the ethernet icon
(arrow symbols) instead of the WiFi icon.
Also, in this state there are no other WiFi networks visible in the
However, the laptop is still connected with my WiFi and the connection works
Using "service network-manager restart" in the console I can get the wireless
icon back and all the other networks around me are visible again.
This can be reproduced anytime and with 100% "success rate". The problem
appeared with Ubuntu 16.10 and was persistent since.
