Does anyone know how to remove preferred networks from the list without Administrator?
To make any system preferences changes you'll need administrator access.
Also, which version of OS X are you using? Are you just trying to join a different network? in Lion under Network for WiFi you can click "Network Name" and join another network.
I'm not sure which Mac I'm using because it's my first time using one. I'm trying to remove it so I can readd it to preferred networks because my wifi is connected, but there's no internet access (any help on this?).
Click on the and select "About this Mac" you'll see the OS version.
This is the one I have.
If you have another Mac, you might be able to connect this Mac in target disk mode, and then remove the preference file where the preferred networks are stored. You'll then have to reconnect to the network when you reboot. I don't know offhand where that file is, or if it's safe to delete or modify.
I don't have another Mac.
I'm removing the network so I can reconnect and setup the wifi.
Only reason I'm doing this is because my house wifi does not work for internet. It's connected but no internet connection. If there's a way to fix it, I won' t need to remove network and try again. Thanks!
