    Network Manager self-destructs

    In U 9.04 (Jaunty), I select System -> Administration -> Network
    After unlocking, I select the Wired network, select the Hosts tab.
    Then I select a host, click on Properties and what does it do?
    It disappears! Not the most convincing tool in the box, is it?
    Am I the only one getting this?
    Regards to one and all,
    Phil

    Ahoy Shropshire-dweller.

    Now (bearing in mind I'm using a LiveCD here), but I can't seem to find the application you are using, perhaps it's just me, though.

    THAT's the spirit!
    Well, nothing in Linux is actually called what it actually IS, is it?
    Otherwise we wouldn't have all those hugely humorous file names, would we?
    I thought I was trying to use the Network Manager.
    Typical of those University types.
    You're well off out of it, really; still ....
    Thanks, anyway,
    Phil

    First network manager is in the top panel on the right.
    Second network manager is where you setup your connection.
    Third That's Network Tools that you're opening, see 1 and 2.
    Now if you didn't have a network manager THEN you could use it to set your connection up.

    For the rest this is what the OP is opening. I run Ultimate Edition so I have it. See pic.
