NetworkManager -- and what else??



	The man pages are pretty sparse. But it often fails, at least 
here. What are you supposed to do, in order to try again to connect? (Say 
you know you *have* a connection; your other machines are doing fine...)

	There's a launcher that looks like two monitors on a vertical 
pipe; right-click and get its Properties, and it tells you it runs the 
command usr/bin/system-config-network. Left-click, give it root's 
password, and it shows you all sorts of nice GUI stuff including buttons 
to 'activate' or 'deactivate' your ethX. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it 
even makes a connection after NM has failed.

	Often both fail. Then what?
