Luka, thanks for clarification.
Meantime is there any tools (within KDE ?) to manage all network interfaces ?

I'm struggling to find someting complete and useful under (k)ubuntu. 
My other Linux experience is Fedora where tools under KDE (even 
based on Gnome) are available. I have the feeling that ubuntu lacks this.

Thanks to all.
Bye,
