Always get confused when you enter Windows Network and Sharing Center? Then, it’s time to sort out a way to manage or clean your local network settings now.

What Is A Local Area Network Connection?

To get you started, review the following information:

Your computer would be UNABLE to access the Web WITHOUT a network adapter. This usually happens to a newly bought or installed Windows based operating system. The most common reason for that issue about hardware is, your system needs a proper device driver to be installed. Yes, a driver will allow your device to work properly.

A newer version of Windows like Windows 10 does have the ability to AUTOMATICALLY detect a local area network that is available. This too typically would cause a pop-up or alert that enable you to join the network only if you also have the correct log-in info: username & password.

Furthermore, advanced users can also easily create some extra internet connection, e.g., VPN.

What Is The Possible Problems after That?

After using some public Wi-Fi hotspot at hotel, airports and such, you should be aware of the messed up LAN settings. Example, some would be still listed or stored even they are actually unavailable.

How to Address This Issue on Your Windows?

For Windows 10 users, do the following:

Input “Network” without quote marks in the search tool in the taskbar.

Choose “Network & Internet”, later, of course.

Then, check out the “Wi-Fi” section firstly.

Visit a link, named “Manage Wi-Fi settings” at the bottom of the list.

To remove any unwanted network profile from your own machine, click or tap on it and select the “Forget” button afterwards. This deletes the information (* SSID only) from Windows. And to clean the stored wireless passwords, you can consider using some 3rd-party tool like WiFi Password Remover, if you’re having issue performing this action for yourself. And, if you want change the saved network access, follow this page.

For Windows 7 readers, try out the steps given below:

Start

Control Panel

Network and Sharing Center

“Manage wireless networks”

Double check the options are listed in the windows. Right click an unused option, launch “Disable” or “Remove” option on the right menu. Note, some mistakenly deleted profile would request you to reinstall the program or rebuild the connection if you want to reuse it later.
