    I have my network settings set to not ask for new networks. However, I once joined a Linksys network, that had the name Linksys. Everytime I drive through a neighborhood my phone asks me if I want to join the Linksys network... I want to know how to clear ALL NETWORKS remembered in my phone. I will then reconnect to my home network. I made the mistake of joining a friend's Linksys one time and get punished all the time because it is the common name for a network when people buy the Linksys products and don't change the name of the network. It has been annoying for so long, I figured I would finally ask. I don't see anywhere to "clear" networks.

    Thanks if any of you have the "simple" answer.

    You may have to do this while in range of a network named Linksys (and you may have to connect to it, but I'm not sure about that).

    Settings -> Wi-Fi

    Under Choose a Network... tap the > symbol to the right of the Linksys entry, then tap the "Forget this Network" button.

    Thanks for the reply. I will try this later today when I am in range of a Linksys network. It is not displaying it now, but I hope you are correct and it shows it while I am in range. That would be great if I could get rid of it. Will report in later.

    Thanks again for the info... Happy Holidays.
