package contains a graphical
interface (network-admin) to set up your network. The
application is available from the standard Gnome menu as
Tools-->Networking. You will be asked for the root password to
effect changes to networking, as in
Dialogue requesting root password for network administration.
You will then see the interface that will allow you to set up your
networking. With a laptop, for example, with regularly changing
network configurations you can create a number of appropriate Network
Profiles, with one called home chosen in
Figure 66.2. To establish a connection you can
click on the unselected button for the appropriate network device in
the Status column of the Connections tab (after choosing the
appropriate Network Profile).
