Description of problem:
I use my laptop at home and office. At office i use dhcp, and at home static ip.
Network manager provides on viable means of switching between both. I end up
using system-config-network which i hate to use :(

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove laptop from office network
2. Plug laptop to home network
Actual results:
