I am trying to delete an ad hoc network connection in windows 7.   It doesnot not appear in manage wireless networks so I cant delete it there.   It is at the top of the list so valid network connections do not happen unless the connection is disconnected.  any ideas?

Hi, try this:

Go to Control Panel > Classic View > Network  and Sharing Center > Customize > Merge or delete network location  > Highlight the network then click Delete.

The above seems more for Vista. This relates to windows7:

Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center. Then on left pane window, click Change adapter settings. It should be there to delete it.

Hmmm... I tried now myself to create an ad-hoc network, I created myself two types of ad-hoc wireless networks. First that I saved, and the second, that I haven't. First I found among the Manage Wireless Networks, and the second, I just disconnected from it in Notification Area, and it didn't appear any more.

I'm thinking about your problem here, is that you might be having a Permission issue here. You might not be seeing some of the profiles that are set by other users of the same computer. Look for them and delete them when logged on using their usernames.

the solution was to install the wireless adapter software and then reinstall.
