Sometimes Windows refuses to connect to a wireless network (eg Eduroam) and no matter what you do it just will not reconnect even though you have had to connected in the past to that wireless network. Grrr….
I have found that sometimes this doesn’t remove every trace of the wireless network, but I have found a useful command line method on Windows 10 which reliably removes a corrupted network configuration.
Press + X to call up an extremely useful menu with some very handy shortcuts to Windows tools. Select “Run…” and then type in the box:
A scary black box will appear … this is good! You can type commands into the black box and get stuff done. 🙂
But for now, you should only need the two commands below …
Show all wireless profiles on the PC
netsh wlan show profiles
Delete a profile
netsh wlan delete profile name=”ProfileName”
(Where ProfileName is the name of the network you want to remove – NB you need to put the ProfileName in quotes)
