"Edit Connections" is for primarily editing per-user settings. I think
there's also a plugin for systemwide settings which can be edited at the
same place, but Fedora is using a plugin to use the existing
system-config-network settings instead, so you have to fire up
system-config-network to change systemwide settings.
