    System Preferences --> Network --> AirPort --> Advanced and remove it there.

    You did click "OK" once you removed it, then "Apply"?

    If that doesn't work you can delete the password from your keychain (Utilities -> Keychain Access)

    Hi there, I've been having a similar issue, except we reset out router. I mistakenly typed in the old password, and it tried to connect, but could not. I am now stuck with a did connection I can't get rid of.
    I tried what was posted on this forum, but to no avail. I cannot find where Utilities is on my Mac. (Late-2011 MacBook Pro.) Where might I find it?
    Edit: my error, I found it.
    But the network name/wrong password is not in my keychain. Anywhere else?
