Seems I can never find myself working with a GUI network-manager, they always fail on me. I decided to look for a command line alternative, and found one installed on my fedora system. It’s called nmcli.
Will give your general infos about your network status.
nmcli general status
To tell you if wifi is enabled, you can add on/off to enable/disable:
nmcli radio wifi
List all available networks where we can connect:
nmcli device wifi list
Refresh previous list
nmcli device wifi rescan
Create a new connection to a password protected AP
nmcli device wifi connect <SSID|BSSID> password <password>
