Where are you seeing the wireless network that you want to delete?

Are you connected to it?

Hello kcube,

If "Manage Wireless Networks" is empty, then that means that you no longer have any wireless network connection profiles left.
Wireless Network - Remove
Are you referring to the list of wireless networks that are within range of your computer in "Connect to" instead? If so, then you could refresh (top right corner in "Connect to") the list, but that's about it since you do not have a wireless network profile created with them.

For now, see if this below may able to have your wireless network profiles show again in "Manage Wireless Networks" afterwards to hopefully then be able to delete them.
