The initial issue is that without network device, no settings should be displayed and eventually applied in the first place ;-)

In the mean time, it is probably not so hard to fix this small issue. At least the Apply button should be disabled if there's nothing to apply... Unfortunately, I'm occupied this month, and the next...
