Wireless starts at boot, but should not


I use Fedora.
I use the Network Device Control to configure eth0 (wired lan) and eth1 (wireless lan).
Everything is working, except that the wireless starts at boot time, whereas I have not clicked
the 'Activate device when computer starts' button in the configuration window.
Any idea?
Thanx!
Patrick

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

in there are some files, ifcfg-eth0, ifcfg-eth1 etc. Whichever one your wireless is on, make sure that ONBOOT=no

Thanx Techno.
Yes I checked that, and it is correct:

DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=no
TYPE=Ethernet
....
