but I was surprised today to see the same icons in Christian's first screenshot of Fienix 2020-01 posted New Year's morning.I wrote:Instead of the usual internet icon in the upper right panel, I now have two icons, sort of rectangles. The one on the right has internets speed as kb/s by it. Clicking on it shows only the enP4096p4s4: 192... stuff and in: and out: speeds.
Apparently one of those sort-of-rectangles was added to the left of the old World internet icon with kernel 5.5. By the time of 5.5.0-rc4 the world was replaced with another rectangle, making two rectangles. Noticing only one rectangle in Casey's screen dump, I wondered if one of them might be wi-fi related, so I rebooted without my wi-fi dongle, but I still got both "rectangles," but the left one showed no wi-fi sources until I plugged the dongle back in. I still think not being able to connect with my usual wi-fi source represents a problem that might be fixable. What makes this really puzzling is the fact that when I click on that left icon, it shows a list of five wi-fi sites, and clicking on any of them except the one I know the password for brings up the password requester immediately! Any clues here?
