Public bug reported:

Affects: hal (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

I was browsing through the device manager and I noticed that my WLAN
card reports 'net.interface_up = false' even though it's up and
connected to an access point.

The output of lshal -l is:

I don't know if this doesn't affect other operations like resuming from suspend, etc. so I thought it would be a good idea to report it. If you need more info let me know.
