Note that gnome-nettool doesn't appear to support ethtool or MII ioctl()s for
link speed, which means that the link speed does not display correctly.  I'm not
sure what its using, but on my (32-bit) box both mii-tool and ethtool report the
link speed correctly, but gnome-nettool shows "not available".

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

This bug seems to have been fixed in gnome-nettool-2.20.0-2.fc8

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
