In my internet list there are several wifi id's which is always displaying even I delete them through the GUI. How am I supposed to get to the interface files and edit the interfaces of ethernet and Wifi?

If you are using network-manager, the location of the connections is:


You will find all the Wired and Wireless connections here, you can modify or delete any connection if you want.

After making any change run sudo service network-manager restart.

You need to edit the file /etc/network/interfaces

To get more info, you can visit Network Configuration

To list all your available interfaces, you can use the command sudo ifconfig -a
