Which OS are you using? Does it have any impact on the network service? It's possibly due to a bug from an older version of Network Manager.

Thanks!

I'm using Linux OS:
Linux BDK-DMZ-MCA-USSD-02 2.6.18-238.el5PAE #1 SMP Sun Dec 19 14:42:44 EST 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Currently, there is no impact on the network service.

You mentioned here it's possibly due to a bug from an older version of Network Manager.
How to check the version of Network Manager?
Can you advise me?
Thanks

Well, there are many flavors or distributions of Linux available, i.e. Debian, Centos, Redhat, Ubuntu etc. I wanted to know which one you are using. You may try the following commands to find out about your OS information:

$ cat /etc/redhat-release (for Redhat systems)
$ cat /etc/*-release
$ lsb_release -a
$ cat /proc/version

For a Redhat or Centos system, with the following command you can find out the package version details:

#rpm -qa | grep NetworkManager
# rpm -qi NetworkManager


Thanks!

Summary : Network connection manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all
times. It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for
usage on servers. The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible. If using DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

If you have a license and already registered to RHN, then can try the following:

# yum update NetworkManager
