Wifi profiles / changes via Networking panel...

I have a Dell 5160 laptop with wireless card (b/g) in it (Atheros
chipset - Shows as ath0).

At work, the access point has no security. At home, I use WEP.

It looks like the Network Settings panel >should< allow you to set up
multiple profiles for the network devices to make easy switches between
the two networks. I've set up "Home" and "Work." The problem is, the
settings don't seem to save. If I get "Work" all configured, and then
create "Home" and get it working, switching back to "Work" results in a
completely unconfigured network settings page (as if you'd just created
a new profile - wifi nor ethernet are configured or activated.)

Any thoughts/ideas/better ways to do this?

(I used to be a die-hard KDE fan, but am rather liking the Ubuntu styled
Gnome... I'd like to try to make things work as they planned.)
