Recently I changed wireless access points with another of the same name. Rather than the name remaining “jermsmit.com” in windows it changed to “jermsmit.com 2”. Perhaps just me, but I found this to be a little annoying. So I jumped in the command line (as administrator) and performed the following steps

Opened the command prompt and typed:

  1. netsh wlan show profiles – This shows all wireless profiles on the PC
  2. netsh wlan delete profile name=”ProfileName” – Deletes a profile that’s out of range, you can also use a wildcard “*” to remove all that match.

During my research on how to do this I have found the following: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/manage-wireless-network-profiles
