How do I remove traces of old connections

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?TG9yZCBTdmVu?=, Jan 27, 2006.

  1. Having installed my new wireless (PCMIA) card, the tray icon lists the
    connection as 'wireless connection 5', even though it is the only one listed
    in my Network Connections folder. Presumably, therefore, XP Home SP2 (my OS),
    still has listed wireless connections 1 - 4, although they no longer exist.
    Where does XP Home keep this info, and how do I amend/delete it? Also, a tad
    off topic, but does the same apply to wired (LAN) and Dial-Up Networking? I'd
    appreciate any help/advice. Thanks.

    It was then that I realised that the light at the end of the tunnel was the
    headlight on an oncoming train.

    Moving my USB network adapter to a different USB socket on the same
    PC produced Wireless Connection 2 (and more) with putting other devices
    on the same USB ports. So much for hot swapping USB devices, like camera,
    wireless adapter, Lexar USB stick.
    I just right click, rename, get rid of the number, and the irritation is fixed.
    Have found no ill effects from these phantom connectoids, if they still exist.
