This is hrev47828.

If you have Network preflet open and you change network settings using ifconfig the preflet won't update until you restart it. Same applies to NetworkStatus information window.

I hope to implement this as part of the work I'm doing now...

I've only have a question: How would you handle the case where you have the Network preflet open, and you are modifying an interface, by modifying its IP address, for example, and someone (the NetServer, for example) changes the interface settings under your nose ? I guess you don't want to lose the changes you are doing, no ?

Maybe show an alert if not in DHCP mode? Or update silently and only show an alert if network settings were changed by the user and haven't been saved yet? Also, could this be implemented in new network preflet as well?

Of course.
