Fedora 15: Remove wireless network from 'list of preferred networks'

Hi all,

I accidentally clicked on a wireless network once and now every time I boot up, it tries to connect to that network and asks for the password. I have to keep pressing cancel and then it connects to my regular network.

I tried fiddling around with the network settings but I couldn't see any place where I could remove that network from the 'List of preferred networks' or at least try to prevent it from connecting automatically.

Any idea on how to remove this network from the list of preferred networks? Edit some file somewhere maybe?

Thanks.

Right click on the network icon and select "Edit Connections."

Perhaps you didn't notice, but I said I'm using Fedora 15. Your suggestion works only on Gnome 2.xx

I could always login under the Force Fallback mode and do it from there, but I was wondering if it was possible natively under Gnome 3.

Bump. Anyone?

Is there a way to access 'Edit Connections' in Gnome 3, like we can by right clicking the Network connections in Gnome 2.xx?

If you look under common F15 bugs page it shows that you can type ALT-F2 to get to the run dialog and type nm-connection-editor which should bring up the utility that willl allow you to have that functionality.

Sorry cymbaline42, I'm using F15 and that's how I do it. But I'm using AWN instead of gnome-panel, so my system behaves like it did under F14.
