Windows 7: Can't delete AD HOC network.

03 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Can't delete AD HOC network.

I recently created an ad hoc network to share the internet connection with my laptop. I've now stopped using it but cannot seem to delete it. It still shows on the list of available networks on my pc and network. I didnt save the network so it doesnt show in the list when i click "manage wirless networks".

It goes if i remove my wireless usb dongle but then reappears when i plug it back it. Also it's still there after a restart. Is there anyway i can get rid of it? Maybe a command prompt to clear network history or something?

I'm having a similar problem. I accidentally created an ad-hoc connection I think. Now my laptop won't connect to my wireless internet. I get the message "Intel My WiFi tech could not be enabled while the wireless network adapter has an ad-hoc connection." I've tried going into network and sharing center, manage wireless networks. It only lists my regular wireless network. I don't know what to do. Everything is on my laptop. Could somebody help.
