Ah .. That damn Network Configurator.  It seems to be OK for configuring 
your network but if you want to do things like have auto redial on or to 
permanently change your router/gateway then you are best editing the 
files directly in /etc/sysconfig.  I had that problem but I don't after 
editing the files directly.  Don't ask me why.
