I watched Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) in Windows 7 on Channel 9 and would love to test it out. But my laptop is already set up. In the video one of the guys go into the command prompt and runs some command starting with netsh , but then zooms out so you don't get to see the rest of what he writes.
Does anyone know what he writes there to make his laptop completely forget about the Wi-Fi settings he just set up?

If you open the Network and Sharing Center, then click on "Manage wireless networks" you can remove all saved wireless network profiles.
I think it's probably the Delete command:
Where ProfileName is the name of the profile you set while creating the connection—which you can find using the List command:
Open CMD as Admin and run the following command:
netsh wlan delete profile name=*
I had an SSID I couldn't make go away. I tried refreshing the available connections list, turning the radio off and on, resetting the cable modem, the netsh commands mentioned in another answer, searching the Registry for the SSID and deleting all of the associated keys - none of that worked. I was finally able to make it go away by disabling the wireless profile, then using the network troubleshooter to re-enable it (because "Disable" never changed to "Enable"). When the connection list came back up, the offending SSID was finally gone.
