[Bug 1581846] Re: Outdated documentation
I asked because I know very little about this topic. :-/ The attached
file is what my own machine outputted when I ran the "nm-tool" command.
I now think that the "nmcli dev" command would be a better replacement:
$ nmcli dev
DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION
wlan0 wifi connected GuestWNET
eth0 ethernet disconnected --
ttyUSB0 gsm unavailable --
lo loopback unmanaged --
It shows the state of each device.

Well, it's a docs bug, and now when you have pointed it out, we'd better
change it somehow.
