Description of problem:
I had a hard time figuring out where to set my IP address enter the IP
address for my gateway (router).  It wasn't under "Internet Setup Wizard"
and it didn't appear to be part of the "Network Configuration" tool either.
 It was buried a few levels deep in the Network Configuration tool, but I
would like to request that it be made more immediately available. It would
be great if there could be a "Local Network COnnection" tool for the
Internet wizard.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Open "Start Here" and then "System Settings" tools. Try to configure a LAN

Actual Results:  It is not immediately apparent whether to choose "Internt
Connection Wizard" or "Network Configuration." 

Expected Results:  Should be obvious.

Both are possible... but the UI certainly needs more work.
