Description killerman.ravi 2011-05-27 11:55:50 EDT
Description of problem: It was working properly when I installed Fedora 15 on my machine. But when I enabled IPV6 in Network Manager,  I got blocked from accessing Internet. 

Then I tried to disable it by clicking on "Options" button in Network Manager. However, it remains disabled. I tried rebooting but it didn't work. 

I also disabled IPV6 from the command line and that has also not enabled the "options" button in Network Manager.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on Network Manager Icon. Open it. Click on Options button.
2. Click on IPV6 tab in Options dialog. 
3. Enable IPV6 and save the changes.
Actual results:
IPV6 gets enabled alright. But there is no way of re-entering "Options" dialog from Network Manager as it gets greyed out.

Expected results:
 I should be able to access Options dialog in Network Manager and undo the changes.

Additional info:
Using Fedora 15. Also did a Yum update after fresh installation.

This is actually problem of control-center design. I think that it will be changed in Gnome 3.2.
Please edit your connection using nm-connection-editor.
