What's the output of
Code:
ifconfig -a
See if you can bring up the interface you are connecting with.
Code:
ifconfig ethX up
If wireless you will need to do:
Code:
iwconfig ethX essid any

Did you try these commands in the terminal window ..

1) su

2) system-config-network

( The setup tools will not work as an ordinary user.)

Sounds like you aren't root when this runs, or rather it's not picking up the fact that you're not and prompting you for the root login to enable to admin side of the tool. Check if you can use it normally when properly root.... open a terminal window, su - to become root then run system-configure-network and the tool should load fully enabled.

su

# system-config-network

> > Highlight an item

> "Menu" > Edit > > untick the "Controlled by NetworkManager"

.. And then you got two colored buttons 'Activate', Deactivate'.
( For that item.)
