Reference: Deleting wireless network connections in Fedora 16

It took me a few tries to figure out how to delete a wireless connection from NetworkManager on GNOME 3.2 systems (such as Fedora 16).

As far as I can tell, there’s no GUI way to do it.

It appears as if you should be able to remove connections with the command-line interface program nmcli with something like nmcli con delete id "Auto NetworkName" but that doesn’t seem to work for me. (Nor does it result in an error message.)

However, if I go to /etc/sysconfig/network- scripts and blow away the files corresponding the connection that I want to remove (sudo rm -f *NetworkName), the connection appears to get deleted. It’s at least no longer reported in nmcli con list.
