network-manager in FC6 tries to connect to non-existent network
Hardware: IBM ThinkPad T43
I use network-manager in Fedora 6 because I switch access points often. My problem is that at one point I inadvertently fat-fingered an essid and now it always tries to connect to the misstyped essid.
My fat finger came out as 123-456
The real essid might be 123.456
It always tries to connect to the incorrect one first and because it is so close I guess it thinks it is correct. I then have to "connect to other wireless network" and type in the essid. How do I get rid of the fat finger essid? There is no man page and I cannot find a config file. This is my first experience trying to use a gui tool. Previously I would just vi into ifcfg-eth1 and uncomment or change settings as needed.
How it happened in more detail:
left click network-manager applet. choose create new wireless connection. type in the wrong essid. connection fails. choose connect to other wireless network, type in correct essid. connection works. the next visit to this access point results in network-manager trying to connect to the incorrect essid and failing.
