Description Ryan 2013-07-10 01:46:39 EDT
Description of problem:

In section 7.3.1: 
Default connection no longer called 'em1'
No field for 'connection name'
you can add new settings for the network under different profiles by selecting 'add profile...'
you can remove/reset a profile by going to the 'options' button under the profile and selecting the 'reset' item on the left, and then choosing to either 'reset' or 'forget'
Comment 1 Ryan 2013-07-15 03:03:59 EDT
edit: with current revisions, this is now 8.3.1, also, to clarify the 'no field for connection name' comment, this is called simply 'Name:' in the identity menu of the connection dialogue
Comment 2 Stephen Wadeley 2014-03-21 05:29:35 EDT
This is now here:

Under this heading:
Configuring the Connection Name, Auto-Connect Behavior, and Availability Settings

I have made some updates, will appear in the next build.

Thank you

I made some updates for Fedora 21 but another review would be a good idea.

2.2.5. Configuring a Wired (Ethernet) Connection


Thank you

Checking Fedora 23.

Saving Your New (or Modified) Connection and Making Further Configurations

If you use nm-connection-editor, the text is correct (in the section mentioned), but if you use the GNOME tool, the names are on the left and change as follows:

s/802.1X Security tab/Security view/
s/IPv4 Settings tab/IPv4 view/
s/IPv6 Settings tab/IPv6 view/

In both cases I see the GUI has 802.1x where it should be 802.1X

If you use nm-connection-editor you will see privacy extensions option for IPv6.

MATE desktop uses the nm-connection-editor GUI.

Its hard describing GNOME 3 GUI things
Comment 5 Stephen Wadeley 2015-10-22 15:41:57 EDT
I see I already updated the wording in the Wi-Fi section

Then, to configure: 

click Security and proceed

click IPv4 and proceed


Easy option is to just make Wired the same, to describe only GNOME 3. Other option, is to make the descriptions mere generic, when times allows.
