Forgetting (Removing) a WiFi Network

Forgetting a wireless network from your computer or mobile device can be useful if you’re having difficulty reconnecting to the network, or helpful when you’ve changed your password. (In the case of SaxaNet, you’ll need to enter your new password to rejoin.)

You can perform the steps below for any Georgetown WiFi network.


  1. Right-click on the Network icon in your system tray (lower right-hand side of your computer), and then select Open Network & Internet settings.
  2. Click WiFi, and then click the Manage known networks link on the right-hand side of your computer.
  3. Select the wireless network (e.g., SaxaNet), and then click Forget.


  1. Click the WiFi symbol at the top of your screen, and then select Open Network Preferences.
  2. In the Network window, select Wi-Fi, and then click Advanced.
  3. In the next window, select the WiFi network from Preferred Networks, and then click on the minus sign just below the list. (Note: To select multiple networks, press and hold the Command button, and then click on each additional network. Release the Command button when you’ve selected all your desired networks.)
  4. Click OK to remove the network(s).


  1. Tap the Settings icon.
  2. From the Settings screen, tap on Wi-Fi.
  3. Tap on the encircled “i” next to the network you want to remove.
  4. In the next screen, tap on Forget This Network.


  1. Tap on the Settings icon.
  2. From the “Settings” screen, tap Connections.
  3. From the “Connections” screen, tap Wi-Fi.
  4. Press and hold the listing of the network you want to forget, and then select Forget from the menu.
