  Might be after upgrade to network-manager-gnome, the item Edit Connections... at the bottom of the network manager's menu is now insensitive i.e. grayed out, therefore user cannot configure his/her connections as indicated in http://docs.xubuntu.org/1204/internet-networks.html#network-connections

  workaround : launch /usr/bin/nm-connection-editor to display the
  network connections window and have access to the settings.
