Deleting Networks

  greybeard 23:12 04 Jan 2006

XP2 on laptop Intel wireless card with InetPROSet software
98se on desktop with Belkin Wireless G USB and software.

I can delete profiles from my ad hoc network, but how do I delete a network name ?
It still appears in Windows explorer left hand pane, and left clicking tells me that I dont have access.

If it is an old "Workgroup" name, and none of the computers in the network is still using that name, it should eventually disappear. Windows can be very temperamental about what it shows or doesn't show in My Network Places!

a workgroup name can only exist if at least one computer on a network is using that name. Otherwise it will disappear of its own accord - although it might take a while.
