how to delete defunct profiles in the connect to a network box
Dear All,
I have a small wireless network at home. It used to be unsecured with MAC
address filtering but once I found that MAC addresses could be cloned, I
replaced all my WAPs to be able to use WPA-2 encryption.
Now vista retains the old unsecured profiles (even though it recognises them
to be defunct) in the connect to a network box which appears when I move
around the house and change the WAP I connect through. Any way of deleting
the obsolete profiles?
Regards
AMcF

Hi
Did you try to look at the wireless manger and delete the unneeded profile
