I can't find out how to activate different wired profiles through gnome3 network panel ($ gnome-control-center network); i created these profiles within nm-connection-editor?

...Or is there a way to recreate these directly within the new (frustrating) gnome3 network panel?

Thanks for any help. Kind regards.

As described here, you add them using nm-connection-editor and then select one from the network panel (just like with wireless networks).

The feature removed from gnome shell :(

The workaround is,

  1. install gnome shell extension: App indicator support.
  2. Run nm-applet (should run automatic when you login)
  3. Customize the extension, where to show network manager applet, in panel or message tray
