BUG: Epiphany and Evolution start in offline mode when I am online wireless

Peer Schaefer
Package: unknown
Version: NN

I am connected to the Internet via an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
(iwl3945 module). Epiphany and Evolution work fine, but always start in
"offline mode". To connect to any site resp. receive/send e-mail, I have
to uncheck the item "Work offline" in the "Files" menu of
Epiphany/Evolution. Iceweasel/Firefox behaves different and starts in
online mode. Lynx and ping also work fine from the start.

Perhaphs its a bug in Gnome: When I am connected wireless the network
manager always shows the "not connected" icon, even when I am online.
Connecting wired via eth0 "cures" the problem. Perhaps Gnome notifies
all Gnome-native apps that I am offline when I am using wlan0 (because
eth0 is dead).

I am using Debian GNU/Linux "Lenny" (testing), kernel 2.6.24-1-amd64 #1
SMP, and Gnome 2.22.1.

Has the same problem a while ago. I solved it with sledgehammer approach and got rid of Network Manager. If you need to use NM I'd suggest installing gconf-editor and see if you can find any settings related to your issue.

As for epiphany, you should turn off (using gconf-editor)
apps/epiphany/general/managed_network. I'm not sure, but I beleive it
was allready mentioned on the list( I saw it somewhere). It was
annoying for me to.

I do not use Evolution much,  but I can see
apps/evolution/shell/start_offline in gconf-editor.

Looks that Network Manager thinks you are offline unless interfaces
are in "roaming mode" and connected. That means that even if
interfaces are properly configured trough /etc/network/interfaces and
connected, NM thinks you are offline. There is bug #415891 reported as
I can see, and things are going to improve in newer versions of NM.

Lenny "stable" 2.6.86 GNOME 2.22.3
Path: Applications -> System Tools -> Configuration Editor
Folder path: apps/epiphany/general/  
In the window to the right (Name/Value) look for managed network.
Uncheck this value.
Exit
Restart browser.

I've noticed the same problem with the Network Icon always has the red 'x'
Until it becomes I probably I won't get around to trouble shooting it.
