After my recent update, Network Manager is showing this:

enter image description here

My question is: How to fix this?
How to remove additional(cloned) wireless device?
Is there a config file for this?

The icon is showing "no connection", but the connection is fine. It's just confusing.

Is anyone else having the same problem?
Any help appreciated!

Please post the output of ifconfig and cat /etc/network/interfaces. –  terdon Mar 11 at 5:34
    
and sudo lshw -c network also –  g_p Mar 11 at 5:39
    
I've added output of these commands. Not much in /etc/network/interfaces just 2 lines. –  rehash Mar 11 at 17:54

Well, I was trying to figure out why this thing happened, and what was wrong, as this came up after update/reboot. Couldn't find anything.

In the meantime $ sudo service network-manager restart fixed the problem.
Still boggles me.
