    Delete unused wifi network


    I have a Wi-Fi network that I no longer use and have replaced with a nest. However, it still connects and interferes. How do I remove an unused network?

    Deleting older and unused Wireless Network Profiles.


    Deleting older and unused Wireless Network Profiles.

    I had reason recently to make a change to one of my wireless network profiles and discovered that I have dozens of profiles listed that are no longer used. They include hotels, printers and other miscellaneous network items.

    Can the older unused ones be deleted from the registry without creating a problem?

    The only ones that appear in Settings are the ones in current or recent use. If I only had a few to do, I would do it from a DOS window, but I have dozens. *Eek

    Thanks, Peter B.

    WiFi issue in the secured network?

    Greetings hirababulogantha,

    The following are troubleshooting steps I use myself whenever I get odd disconnects on any of my mobile devices that always seem to resolve this type of issue.

    To turn Off/On Wifi

    • Go to Settings on the phone
    • Navigate and tap Wifi
    • Flick Wifi off or on.

    Remove a stored(known) network

    • Go to Settings on the phone
    • Navigate and tap Wifi
    • Flick Off Wifi
    • Tap Advanced
    • Tap and hold on the university network then tap Delete.
    • Flick On Wifi
    • Tap the university network to connect to it again.
    Best Regards,
