How to save, across reboots, disabling of automatic wifi connection in Fedora_11 ?
 
Hello,

at each reboot of my computer running on Fedora_11 I have to disable the Wifi connection.

In other words "in which configuration file is this information kept ?"

Thanks

IIRC in Fedora you can check/edit the configuration in

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-(name_of_your_device, e.g., wlan0, eth0, ath0)

or you might use system-config-network (there is option similar to 'not started at startup')

No /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0

Thank you for telling me where the information should be.

Unfortunately, I only have these two files :
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo

and not the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 one,
how can I get it ?

Best,
Francois Colonna

Well, try running 'system-config-network' via terminal/console (as root of course).

Sorry, I forgot to tell you that have desactivated the "wlan0" and "pan0" box and left only the "eth0" box.

I think that your idea to configure the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 is the good one.

I shall try to find out how to get this file.

Thank you very much for your help.
