    Default Yellow triangle and/or yellow exclamation

    Hi all,
    what is the meaning of a yellow triangle on the lower right of the wired network connection icon in the tray?
    Also, when I'm connected through wi-fi I often have a yellow exclamation point in the lower right of the icon.
    What's the meaning? There is no hint at any problem in the pop-up or in the configuration window.

    T.I.A.

    No idea, just replying I see the same thing since the latest plasma updates.

    NetworkManager can perform a basic online connectivity check if /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf contains
    Code:
    [main]
    plugins=ifcfg-suse,keyfile
    
    [connectivity]
    uri=http://conncheck.opensuse.org
    Perhaps the update has mangled it somehow? Anyway if you don't like it, you can just remove it....

    Well, it's not that I don't like it... First of all, I feel it is a half baked feature: you see a yellow triangle but nowhere you can see what it is meant for.
    Secondly, I should not have it in the first place, cause I do not have connection problems: I tried both with the browser and with wget and I can perfectly connect to the http://conncheck.opensuse.org address.

    Code:
    cristiano@xmper8q3 [~]$ LANG=C wget http://conncheck.opensuse.org
    --2017-08-31 13:09:39--  http://conncheck.opensuse.org/

    I was only speculating as to why NM might think there was no internet connectivity, and was recalling a similar discussion a few months back. Anyway, I was really wondering if NetworkManager.conf contained a valid uri following the update? I already knew the outcome of the tests you did, since I'd checked for myself after reading your opening post.

    So did I. Removing the entries works fine for me. Had a customer complain about this as well, logged in through ssh, modified the file, restarted the network and 10 minutes later he called that I didn't need to look into it since the exclamation mark had disappeared

    Hi
    Looks like the site is broken... (and other things playing up on the infrastructure as well). Asked the admins on IRC.

    For further info see the connectivity section on what it's looking for;
    https://developer.gnome.org/NetworkM...ager.conf.html

    Or as suggested, disable the uri check.

    Great!!
    Thank you!

    P.S. I still feel there should be some more information available in the UI about those icons overlays... maybe something in the pop-up?

    Yes, I would agree there... the exclamation mark may be (sort of) self explanatory, but I too wondered the significance of the triangle.

    I don't quite see why "connectivity" needs to be checked anyway... in the, now many, years I've used an internet connected PC, the lack of a connection has been rather apparent in other, more obvious ways, without relying on an overlay to some network icon.

    Also, from the link that "malcolmlewis" provide in comment #7, it seems that a check is performed every 300 sec.

    Code:
    interval Specified in seconds; controls how often connectivity is checked
             when a network connection exists. If set to 0 connectivity checking
             is disabled. If missing, the default is 300 seconds.
