I recently moved into a new development and pretty much each and every

networks are a pain because my Fedora 18 client systems (running Network 
Manager) will sometimes attempt to use one of these network rather then 
my secure WIFI network.

Is there some way to "blacklist" WIFI network not to be used?  Or, to 
reverse that question, is there some way of specifying that only 
networks with a specific SSID should be used?

NM will only autoconnect to networks that it has been told to connect to
before, based on SSID and security settings.  So, if you run
'nm-connection-editor', do you see configurations for those bad SSIDs?
If they exist, something (either a UI applet or you) told NM to connect
to them, but they can easily be deleted from there.

(Or from the command line too with 'nmcli con', then find the ID or UUID
and "nmcli con delete id <id>" or "nmcli con delete uuid <uuid>")


If this capability does not currently exist, should it be implemented?
