The GNOME NetworkManager is a set of co-operative tools that make networking simple and straightforward. Whether wireless or wired, NetworkManager allows you to quickly move from one network to another: once a network has been configured and joined once, it can be detected and re-joined automatically at a later date. It was designed to auto-detect as much information as possible, seamlessly switches connections when necessary, and provides immediate feedback of the network state to users and applications.
