Network Manager "default" connection - how to change

Using Fedora 10 (x86_64) I have two wired connections, one is the local LAN and the other is the Internet (ADSL)

When the machine boots, Network Manager selects the 2nd (LAN) connection as the "default" and sets the default route to look at the local LAN instead of the Internet.

I've been digging around and haven't found where NM gets this "default" setting and am unable to edit connections for some reason. (I've got 30+ years in with computers, I don't think this is a newbie issue.)

Any pointers to where NM is getting it's "default" set would be appreciated.
