Package: gnome-control-center
Version: 1:3.4.2+git20121016.29d7c0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

when wired network is misconfigured, there is no way to fix the
configuration using gnome-control-center, because the Options button
is always disabled.

In my case I selected Network -> Wired -> Options -> IPv4 Settings ->
Method = Link-Local only. This rendered the wired network to be
"Disconnected" (even though the cable was connected) and the Options
button became disabled. There was no way to change the settings back
using Gnome UI.

I was able to fix it by using nm-connection-editor. This bug is
similar to #653815 (Options button for wireless network), which
already seems to be resolved.
