If you’re having trouble connecting to a particular WiFi network on your Mac, like maybe after updating the OS 🙄, it’s time to forget it and start fresh. Here’s how to do it in a few simple steps.
- Open the Network Preference Panel. To do this, click the Apple icon in the top-left corner of your screen and select System Settings. Then, click on Wi-Fi.
- Select the network you want to forget. In the left-hand panel, you’ll see a list of all the networks your Mac is currently connected to. Select the one you want to forget.
- Click the “…” button on the right side of the name of the network.
- Click “Forget this network…” and Confirm your selection. Your Mac will prompt you to confirm that you want to forget the network. Click “Remove” to complete the process.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully forgotten the network. Now, when you try to connect to the network again, your Mac will prompt you to enter the correct password.
This has been very useful for me in the past after updating to a new version of the OS when suddenly my Wi-Fi starts failing.
I hope that it helps you too.
