gconftool-2 --recursive-list /system/osso/connectivity/IAP
will provide output of the connections that are stored on your device.
Check the value of EAP_wpa_preshared_passphrase for the affected

gconftool-2 -s --type string /system/osso/connectivity/IAP/$STRING/EAP_wpa_preshared_passphrase foo
will reset the current value to foo - you must change $STRING to the ID
provided by the output of the first command.

All just theory, did not test this in reality.
