Remove the current network profile

Hi

In Windows 7 SP1, how do I remove the current network profile (Ethernet or wireless) so that, when I restart my system, Windows creates a new network profile?

Thanks

Bye

Hello Balubeto,

Ethernet will usually be handled automatically.

You could use the method in the tutorial below to remove a wireless network profile. You will have to manually connect to the wireless network again afterwards though.

Regarding the Ethernet profile, how do I make sure that Windows recreates the type of current profile?

Thanks

How do I ensure that Windows believes to connect to a new Ethernet network so that it creates a new network profile when I reboot the system?

Thanks

You can check in "Network Connections" after connecting the Ethernet cable to see.

I'm sorry but if I wanted to remove all the parameters of the current network profile on an Ethernet connection so that Windows will create a new network profile when I reboot the system, how should I do?

Thanks

You can do this below to do so:

1) Open an elevated command prompt.

2) Enter the netsh lan show profiles command, and press Enter.

3) Make note of the interface name (ex: "Ethernet") of the profile you want to delete.

4) Enter the netsh lan delete profile interface="Ethernet" command, and press Enter. Substitute Ethernet in the command with the name of your interface instead.

With the netsh command, it is possible to reset only the parameter that indicates the type of network profile of an Ethernet or Wireless in use so that, at the next connection, Windows asks the user again which type of network profile he would like?

Thanks

Nope. As stated, Ethernet is handled automatically.

You will have to manually setup and connect to the wireless connection again after deleting it though.
