Blacklisting networks in NetworkManager

Asked by Michael B. Trausch on 2007-12-21

In NetworkManager’s GNOME user interface, how does one go about instructing NM to never connect to a particular network? I do not see an option in the user interface for doing this—is there some config file that can be altered that tells NM to ignore the existence of certain networks, or can the network be removed from the whitelist that it builds as you manually connect to new networks?

It can be done with gconf-editor:

open gconf-editor
system > networking > wireless > networks

unset the keys for the networks you don't want to connect to.

Sure would be nice to have an option in the network manager applet though....

Can you help with this problem?
