When a ethernet NIC and a wireless lan are present present on the same machine
and configuration is done via yast2 using ifup instead of networkmanager, no
gateway is assigned to the wireless lan card. The wireless lan connects and
receives an IP address but routes no data.

If the Ethernet NIC setting "activate device" in yast is changed from "at boot"
to "on cable connection" then wireless card works as expected after reboot.

For reference please see these threads:


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

2.default ifup behaviour
Actual Results:
as described above

Expected Results:
I would expect ifup to be able to assign a gateway to the wireless lan card
