But that was the start of my problem. I wanted a static connection and
used s-c-n. Now NM is hosed and I don't know how to fix it.

Like I said, it looks like NM can configure the device for static
connection now. So what does s-c-n gain me? If I'm never going to use
it, I'd just as soon not see it in the menu.

On the other hand, removing it reclaims a couple MB of my precious flash drive.
