I just completed a F-15 DVD install (no online repos enabled) on
baremetal.  After installation and boot-up, the network is not enabled
(as expected).  When I click the NM icon in GNOME3, and turn 'on' wired
networking, a network connection is established.

I'm also able to select 'Options...' for the wired NIC, and check '[X]
Connect Automatically' so subsequent boots/logins enable networking.
