Unhappy Cannot save network settings in Fedora

Ok I am really new to Fedora and only use it for school work. My problem is i was doing a lab and i configured my network settings. (changed my ip and subnet from the network ) Then after that i changed computers. When i went back to the original computer i used i was unable to save the network settings and i would always have to save them manually by going into the terminal window. oh btw how do i configure my broadcast when manually doing it from the terminal. Anyways here is the error msg i get when i try to save it :

Component: system-config-network
Version: 1.4.7
Summary: TB016e82ef list index out of range

Traceback (most recent call last):

IndexError: list index out of range

Local variables in innermost frame:

self: <netconfpkg.conf.ConfPAP.ConfPAP instance at 0x973b5ec>

(the x and o's keep going, i cut the length)

Plz help me as i tried to update all my packages by yumming it but no luck.

Thank You so much

Will you be a little more specific?What was the ip and subnet address before and after?On what kind of the network you are?How do you connect to the internet?Is your "originial computer"a server?
