    take a look at networkmanager. If the gnome version is anything like the KDE one, it sounds like exactly what you are looking for.

    Thank you AlexK for the help. But the thing is i couldn't find any Network Manager in my GNome desktop. There are only two application available related to this. One is tagges as:
    Network Device Control
    and the other one is as:
    Internet Configuration Wizard

    so the problem i couldn't solve. Thank you anyway. but if any body can help then please post a reply.

    Thank you.

    Try installing it, or see if the Network Device Control item has an entry for a system tray tool. For installing networkmanager, try as root:
    Code:
    yum install networkmanager

    This thread is OLD but I just found the answer.
    Drag the moveable thingy left to make space in the system tray
    Right click an empty space in the tray and click "Add to Panel"
    Scroll down and choose Network Monitor
