frustrating gnome-control-center network

The "gnome-control-center network" is pretty incomplete application. Unfortunately, this application is called by gnome-shell if you want to modify your network settings. And all this is default in Fedora-16. Grrrr...

The most stupid thing is that you cannot configure wireless connections if your wireless is disabled. And if you enable wireless then you will be affected by your broken configuration...

Fortunately, old good nm-connection-editor works as expected. So, all you need is to kick off the idiotic network stuff from gnome-shell and start old good Network Manager Applet:
 mv /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/status/network.js \

and restart gnome-shell (command 'r').

  1. Here another way:
    1. Open /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/status/network.js
    2. Change 'gnome-network-panel.desktop' in line 1620 to 'nm-connection-editor.desktop'
    3. Save changes
    4. restart gnome-shell
