[Bug 1569484] Re: Auto Ethernet connection profile appears. Wifi does not work anymore.
I've tried kernel 4.6rc3 to no avail (same machine, Dell XPS 13 9350).

Auto Ethernet connection profile appears. Wifi does not work anymore.
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
I ran sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Some
installation have done and Auto Ethernet profile emerged in internet
settings. After those installations I could not connect to internet.
My laptop is Dell xps 13 9350.
I used my TP-LINK wireless adapter to be able to send you this bug.
