Description of problem:
To configure a DSL connection system-config-network cannot be used. It opens consolehelper tool with empty device list. After some time i discovered nm-connection-editor is the program to configure DSL.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
version shipped with Fedora 17 release package.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  ls -l /usr/bin/system-config-network
2. result: "/usr/bin/system-config-network -> consolehelper"
3. >system-config-network, opens a console utility with empty device list.
Actual results:
running system-config-network opens consolehelper utility.

Expected results:
running system-config-network should open nm-connection-editor utility.

Additional info:
Fresh Fedora 17 installation from DVD iso.

AFAIK the GUI (install system-config-network package, not just system-config-network-tui) should be able to configure DSL.
You are right that nm-connection-editor is its successor and that's the reason why we've deprecated system-config-network in rawhide (Fedora-18).

Closing as WONTFIX, thanks for your idea anyway.
