Managing Wifi Saved Networks

Where do I go to manage and delete Saved (Wifi) Networks?


When I came to the office this morning, somehow the SSID of the WPA2-protected network here was already in my "Saved Networks" list. (I.e. when I look for networks it is listed as "Saved Network - Open".) But apparently without the password and other info. I can only assume that it somehow picked that up from my Blackberry? Because I know for a fact I didn't put it in.


So now when I try to connect to the Wifi network it fails because it doesn't have the password.


If I try to connect manually, I get the error "Both name and SSID must be unique among configurations".


So how do I find the list of Saved Networks so I can delete this entry and start over again?


Playbook info:

OS Version


Blackberry info:

9780, OS 6.0 Bundle 1879 (v6.0.0.448, Platform

Re: Managing Wifi Saved Networks

<sigh> So of course 60 seconds after I hit Post I figure out how to see the list of Saved Networks on the Playbook.


I was able to edit the parameters and connect.


So I guess the bug to report to the development team is that for some reason the WEP authentication parameters didn't get copied to the Playbook. I am not exactly sure when during the setup and bridging process that copying happened. It was actually news to me that my Blackberry's saved networks would get copied.

go to the gear on top right to settings to edit wifi settings.


Copy of smartphone wifi networks was a nice feature, but it wont copy the passwords over which is a good thing in some eyes. I wouldnt want all the devices here to auto login to our wifi network with out permission.
