When the mobile broadband item for a connected service is clicked in the left
panel of the Network Manager applet there is much information missing in the
1. Connection State
2. Connection Speed
3. MAC address
4. Signal quality
5. Access Technology
6. The Traffic graph is not plotted although the Received: and Transmitted:
7. The Signal Strength bar at the top does not display anything.
In version 11.4 I believe this data was present but I have not seen it in any
of the 12.x series.
The dongle in use is a Vodafone K3565 which appears to be a rebranded Huawei
I need to use this device in locations with poor coverage and being able to
see its state and performance is exceedingly helpful.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in mobile broadband dongle
2. Enable mobile broadband in Network Manager applet.
3. Connect to service.
4. Click to reveal service details.
