wlan: 1536 tries, 6 failures:

eth: 2101 tries, 2 failures:
- a5d6a8bc83d9e3156071a061e0238e98: failure on eth0, success on eth1, weird?!?!
- 79fe8738f67f21754f0bfe12afa720d5: same machine, same failure
So yeah, these failures are very rare. Pretty much never happens on embedded eth. Happens on a common Wi-Fi USB adapter and a couple of uncommon embedded interfaces.
To put this in perspective, I think they are tons more Wi-Fi interfaces that don't work at all in Tails and people with such hardware are left currently with no notification whatsoever. If we want to improve notifications for broken Wi-Fi in Tails we should work on these interfaces that don't work at all in priority.
