    Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+Del)
    Type nm-connection-editor and press enter
    Go to wireless tab
    Click on the wireless name you want to delete and press the Delete... button
    Press Delete again on the window popping up
    You are done.

    Many many thanks !

    That lead into another solution - opening the Terminal.

    Ctrl+Alt+t seemed to work better

    A very happy,

    Re: Trying to set up wireless but made a mistake...help ! FIXED

    The WiFi nightmare has been fixed !

    I moved to Ubuntu 12.04 and this Dongle works out of the Box


    Belkin G Wireless USB Wi Fi Dongle Network Adapter 54Mbps F5D7050

    I got it here in the UK for GBP 4.89

    As I had a Mega struggle to find a compatible Dongle, I'm very very happy to share that !

    Does not seem too happy to share with an Ethernet router being plugged in but small problem compared to no WiFi !

    a very very happy

    Tim
