  2. Delete "hidden network"

    Hi,

    Deleting or Blocking available networks can only be done using Command Prompt. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Command Prompt.
    • Type netsh wlan add filter permission=block ssid="WLAN name"
      networtype=infrastructure (Replace WLAN name with "hidden network" or the name of the wireless network you want to block) and press
      Enter.
    • Close Command Prompt.
    To remove/delete the network from the block list. Replace "add" with "delete" on the command in step two.

    Looking forward to your response.

  4. How do I remove a Hidden Network

    Delete "hidden network"

    I have a network named "hidden network" in my list of wireless networks. This network is not mine and it is not secured. (it is marked as Open)

    I want to remove the risk of accidentally connecting to this network, as I do not know what it is.

    Secondly, I want to remove it because it is there and it should not.

    So does anyone know how to remove it and/or prevent it from being a possible choice?

    The network is not showing under the "Manage known networks" in the Network & internet/WiFi section.

    The network is not showing in the list produced by the Command "netsh wlan show profiles" executed from an administrator Command prompt.

    The only place I see this Network is in "Show available networks"

    One more detail: In the "Show available networks" list, this network is shown with a shield icon containing an exclamation point.

    Help to remove this network entry would be much appreciated.

    Kind regards
