Its also very confusing to someone who has used Linux for years.  What
the heck is Network tools, Network settings.  Icon?

The network is configured in /etc/network/interfaces.  Plain old text
file.

If you want to rely on your Desktop Environment (DTE) to controll your
network, you need to tell us what DTE you are using as there are at
least 3 DTEs plus a plethora of plain old Window Managers (WMs).

Once you give that info, then only those of us familiar with your DTE
would bother speculating.

Good luck.
