If I remember correctly (from my Edgy VM hat I have no deleted to save
space) is there not some kind of tick box next to the connection?
Unticking it 'deactivates' the connection, ticking it 'activates' it , I think.
(Of course 6.06 had those nice simple buttons).

I don't actually have Edgy installed at the moment so I can't check right now.
But I remember it was some less intuitive interface, I think involving
a tick box.
