The list in the drop-down list is the list of interface types defined with the
enum interface_type. Physical is the name for IF_WIRED. The names are not final
yet, and can be changed, also we could hide certain types which would never
show up.

As for the position, I am first changing the functionality to be correct, and
then changing the position. Currently there is some talk to move it in the same
line as the filter selection, which would give you your initial screen space
back. If this is sufficient enough, or if we need to clean up the welcome
screen even further, that should be up for discussion.
