turning off roaming from the command line


Can someone tell me how to turn off roaming from the command line. I can't seem to make the enable/disable setting "stick" from the Network Manager.

Thanks.

We cannot answer your questions if you supply inadequate information.
What is your distro (Eg: Fedora, slack, (k)ubuntu, ...), and desktop (Eg: KDE, gnome, xfce ... the list goes on and on).

See my profile, at the left?
Please edit yours to reflect your current situation, or state it in your post: "I am running xxxx version x.y.z and using KDE a.b.c"

I think you'd get the same reply in a windows forum ( ? 3, 3.1, 3.11, 98, 2K, CE,ME,NT, Vista - it matters)

I'd like to help, but I don't know anything about your window manager (gnome) and hate "Network Manager" GUIs: They change things, make assumptions about what you're trying to do, do not ask your permission, or tell you what they have changed.
So I'm strictly a command-line junkie when it comes to networking.

Now you have posted the basic information anyone needs to reply to you, I hope someone with better gnome-skills than I have can help you further.

This is a very helpful forum, I don't expect you'll have to wait too long.

If you are still unanswered after a couple of days, please repost here if you can tolerate typing in commands rather than "clicky-clicky - it didn't work". I'll be happy to help.
