Strange behavior of Network Manager in Ubuntu 7.10


Hi,

I have just replaced my wireless router and SSID with a new one. My problem is that everytime I start my workstation, network manager still detects the old one and would then tend to connect to it initially even if the ssid is no longer available. This is causing problems and sometimes even if I input the new SSID will all the security credentials (WPA), I still couldn't get in. Is this a problem of network manager? If so, how can I remove the old SSID from my system so that it won't look for it everytime I start up my machine? Thanks.

When I try to locate that file, it gives me the following:

/sbin/wpa_supplicant
/usr/share/man/man8/wpa_supplicant.8.gz
/usr/share/man/man5/wpa_supplicant.conf.5.gz
/usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa_supplicant.init-daemon
/usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/README.wpa_supplicant.conf.gz
/usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa_supplicant.conf.template
/etc/wpa_supplicant
/etc/wpa_supplicant/ifupdown.sh
/etc/wpa_supplicant/functions.sh

Where would I search that file? Thanks.

Gentoo: /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Another possible location is /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

You gotta have it, you even have man pages and example for it.
