I have two ethernet ports but only one of them is connected which is 
"always on" and is available to all users in the system. I presume that 
would be a system connection? I also use only NetworkManager, as you can 
see below.

# chkconfig --list |grep -i network
NetworkManager 	0:off	1:off	2:on	3:on	4:on	5:on	6:off
network        	0:off	1:off	2:off	3:off	4:off	5:off	6:off

But still the directory you mention above is empty for me. Does it mean 
this is relevant only for connections which require authentication?

Actually I had a similar problem as the OP. I couldn't connect until I 
logged in and asked nm-applet to connect. And I couldn't edit the 
connections as they were greyed out. I resolved my issue by editing the 
files as I mentioned in my first post. Sorry if my questions are going 
OT, just trying to understand how NetworkManager works. Thanks for the 
responses.
