Unsecured wireless network used instead of configured WPA network.
Trying to assist a friend with this problem:
Using the Ubuntu network manager I can successfully connect to the correct wifi network. It is the ONLY configured (wireless) network. However on every boot an unsecured wifi network is connected to (actually it unsuccessfully attempts to connect to the network, leaving a 169.* addr). Connection to the correct wifi network can be achieved again in network manager simply by making any change, then reverting that change (so that the application will attempt to 'apply' those changes, which connects to the network, as those settings were correct from the start). Solutions given on ubuntuforums have been tried and did not work. gconf-editing system->networking->(something) did not work as the system 'folder' does not contain such a 'subfolder'. All configuration files i've been pointed to seem to ONLY reference the correct network.
