FWIW, this is the comment I placed in the bugzilla "fix" which I don't
really see as a fix for the underlying problem.
I don't quite see how plasma-nm-5.9.4-2.fc26 is a fix. According to the
Set auto-negotiate to true for new wired connections
So, this seems to turn on auto-negotiate for when a wired connection is
created. Presumably at install time, most of the time. So, it
seems it only implements the "workaround" for new wired
If this version is installed and the user turns off auto negotiate then
becomes unavailable again. That doesn't seem to me to be
it should be. Why should turning off the ability to auto-negotiate
speed and duplex mode disable "Apply"?
I already responded to the bugzilla, but I'll responed here as well.
NetworkManager now requires to specify speed and duplex mode in case you
disable auto-negotiation so until you set these I cannot allow you to save the
connection, otherwise your choice won't be saved.
