That takes me to a Konqueror window with "settings:/" in the addressbar 
- clicking on the "Internet & Network" icon takes me to 

When opened from those icons, the results are worse - in the Wireless 
Network window the Administration Mode button asks me for a password, 
but then takes me back to the same window with all the settings greyed 
out; the Network Settings doesn't even HAVE a "Administrator Mode" 
button, although there's a panel at the top referring to it!!
