How do I forget a wireless network on my device?
There are a couple of scenarios where you may need to 'forget' a wireless network from your device when you are on-campus:
- Your device is configured to connect to both wireless networks, and you need to remove one.
- You recently changed your Carthage password and you can no longer connect to Carthage-Secure ('forgetting' Carthage-Secure will allow you to reconnect and enter a new password).
- You entered an incorrect password for Carthage-Secure.
