How to change WAP username?

When I tried to connect to my uni from my laptop, I mistaked my username, and it didn't let me connect. No big mistake here, or so I thought.

Then, I found out the right username, so I tried to connect again, but this time it just asked for the password and the username was in grey color, not letting me to modify it...

The conexion is a wireless WPA/WPA2, any help? I cannot find anywhere to edit this. I guess I will finally end up editing the (somewhere) files manually, do you know other way to change this? (or where this file should be?)

Thank you so much!

Fedora 15, clean installation about 2 months ago and last actualization about 2 weeks ago

You might need to edit the config file.

Look for: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcg-WAPNAME
Make a copy of that file previous to editing.

Thank you! I'd hate to be stuck here with windows >__<

Done! Thank you again

Note: The name was actually ifcfg-<WAPNAME> on my system, and I just deleted them (that and the keys-Auto_<WAPNAME> so it just asked for the input again)

Is it normal that the system saves the internet keys without password?? isn't this a security issue??

Welcome

Without the pw, i guess not.
If it would save the pw, then it would be a security issue.. imo.

Right, I need permission, anyway I was surprised to see it in plain text...
Cheers
