Ad Hoc in Windows Vista
11-Oct-07

I recently installed Windows Vista Business onto my laptop. I created an ad
hoc wireless connection, I am no longer using the connection, but to my
surpise I can't remove it. It is staying active. How can I remove it from my
machine. I am hosting the AD HOC. Any help would be great

I have not heard of that before,...but maybe if you connect to some other
network first so the Ad Hoc one is not the active one,...then you might be
able to delete it.

Hi
I am not sure what you mean by remove.
If you do not want AD-Hoc setting, reconfigure to Infrastructure.
If you do not want the Wireless at all, Disable the card in the Device
Manager, or switch it off if your computer has a physical switch for the
Wireless.

Create an ad hoc connection, then try to get rid of it from your Connect to
a network list. Sure, you don't have to connect to it, but in my situation
-- I want to create a new ad hoc network with the same name/different
password because I lot the password -- can't do it.

The reason they are on your list of connections is because you have profiles
associated with those connections. Since they are ad-hoc oviously they are on
your list.

This is what you need to do in order to remove connections that don't need
to be on that list.

Click on Start
Click on Control Panel
In Control Panel double click on "Network and Sharing Center"
In Network and Sharing center look at the list on the left.
On the left it should say "Task"
The list should say:

View computers and devices
Connect to a network
Manage wireless networks
Set up a connection or network
Manage Network connections
Diagnose and repair

click or double click on "Manage wireless networks"
once in there, click on the profiles you want removed and click on the
remove button.
