Comment 14 for bug 283233

I have the same problem. If I change settings with "System Settings" selected then on the next reboot the settings are forgotten and it will go back into auto DHCP mode. If I de-select "System Settings" when I reboot I will have two connects, the new one with auto DHCP mode being favoured.
