network manager keeps trying to connect to random wireless connections when already connected to wired connection
At work my laptop can see 10+ wireless connections, non of which I'm interesed in connecting to.
Even whilst I'm connected to a wired lan, network manager randomly pops open a request to enter the password for a number of these network connections. These requests seem to happen at random intervals during the day.
As I'm using gnome 3 this actually gets worse. When it asks for a wireless password I first get a gnome themed password prompt (which I cancel) and then i get the standard non-themed password prompt.
To make things even worse, if I attempt to go in and attempt to edit the wireless settings, the 'Configure...' button is disabled unless I'm already connected to a network. (ARGHHHHHHHHH!!!!).
