Yes.

inside your desktop, run the program nm-applet and use it to adjust
your settings.

Works for all except static IP for me.  For that, I have to use
nm-applet to turn off all networking, then use system-config-network
for static IP config.  Some people report that newest nm-applet can
manage this, but for me it is hit/miss.
