i know the normal way to do it, but for some reason when computer boots up it is trying to connect to another wireless network, that is no longer listed, so i am guessing it is listed somewhere else maybe in the resgistry, does anyone how to completely clear out the list.

thanks
perry

Assuming you are using Windows Wireless to manage your wireless connections...

:step1: Right Click on your wireless connection in the system tray
:step2: Click on View Available Wireless Networks
:step3: Click on Change Advanced Settings
:step4: Click on the Wireless Networks Tab
:step5: In the Preferred networks section locate the wireless connection you no longer want to connect to and click on it to highlight it and then click on Remove
:step6: Repeat for any other networks you no longer wish to connect to and then click OK when finished.

I put those steps there just in case you were not aware of them, sometimes some folks may miss a step or two, just wanted to make sure you were aware of it.

I will try and research a little more see if I can find a solution for you...

I am not sure if its keep in the registry, I did a search on my registry for the names of the wireless networks I have, or have connected to and it does not yield any results. It does not even find the current one I am connected to either.

FWIW: There is no registry entry...nor a file entry...for any workgroup (wireless or wired) on my XP install.

You can also try disabling the wifi network adapter first then reboot the PC. Enable again the adapter or go to network profile and delete and manage your network profile entries. Is it on an endless acquiring network address?

The network signal might just be in range. Is it present on available network connections? I do not think it would connect if its not even listed or connected previously and configured to connect when in range.
