Network Settings > Wirless > change "Network Name" to "Other"
I think i need to clarify. Im not talking about switching between wireless connections.
Im traveling a lot for business reasons and sometimes on-site I need a fixed IP, gateway, dns setting which I can setup easily. In Ubuntu, I can add a 2nd connection easily by clicking the 2 network arrows on the top panel --> edit network connections --> see screenshot
So after I setup 2 connections I can switch between them on the fly by choosing from the drop down menu. This is still possible in Ubuntu 11.10 (with unity though, I tried by live-cd) With gnome3 and Mint though, I end up with this if I choose network settings from the top panel --> screenshot
If I add another network connection there, it will only let me add "VPN", nothing else.
I checked, the nm-applet is running and the network-manager-gnome is also installed.
So is there a way to get the 1st one working in Mint with gnome 3 without the need of installing an additional application like wicd?
