Manual Network Config in F17 Gnome 3 without Network Manager

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Greetings, I have installed F17 with Gnome 3 desktop and all updates. My desktop sits behind a router running dd-wrt which handles all connections to my isp and provides a static ip to my desktop. I decided to remove network manager and simply use system-config-network-gui to setup my connection. My desktop config isn't that complicated... it's just dhcp with everything handled at the router. For example, running dhclient eth0 after logging in makes everything work just dandy. Unfortunately, upon booting up and logging in my network is in fact not up and running. I have to run system-confi (HowTos)
