    How to delete network connection in xp


    I used the network setup wizard before I knew what I was doing. I would like to delete the "network connection" I created and start over. Have tried everything logical but the "delete" option is not functional.
    Is it possible to delete?

    You can't really delete network connections. In the Network Connections section of the Control Panel, you will be shown all the connections currently connected to your computer. You can right-click and select Disable, and that will stop them from working. Or, you could just remove the NIC.

    need to change or delete a connection


    Hi
    Thanks for confirming what I've found - that you can't delete the wretched things. BUT - what if that connection is now defunct (to a work network) and I want to set up a connection to my home network? Windows won't let me make any changes to the connection. It also won't let me create a new connection.

    All I'm doing is connecting two PCs with an ethernet cable. One PC picks it up no probs, the other - with the work LAN connection - refuses to co-operate.

    Please help!

    Just disable the work LAN connection so that you are left only with the one connection for your home network.

    You can remove the network connection by doing this.

    Right click on the network connection that you want to delete.

    got to Properties.

    hit configure button

    Go to drivers tab.

    hit uninstall

    hit ok in the pop up menu.

    this would remove the network connections that you wanted to remove
