Since yesterday I edited my Wifi connection at home (adding a WPA Key) and updated my connection in NM.

The connection works and I can surf the web.

But the NM menu doesn't show any connection, just:

*v Enable Networking

v Enable Wireless

Connection Information

Edit Connections...*

Thanks for any help!

Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit

I have noticed that if I switch off and then on my laptop wifi device then the menu is correctly shown. But why not at the start? thanks! – palimmo Dec 5 '12 at 10:30
