Access and modify the list of 'remembered' AirPorts
Authored by: adlr on Apr 13, '05 10:35:47AM

While that does show some networks, I know others are stored in:

/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.airport.preferences.plist

They are stored in a hard-to-access serialized format, so you can use this software to open that file and modify it. THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THIS SOFTWARE.

binary: http://gizmolabs.org/~andrew/WifiEraser.zip
src: http://gizmolabs.org/~andrew/WifiEraser-src.zip

probably best to save a backup of that file just in case.

Access and modify the list of 'remembered' AirPorts

Interesting! I didn't realize at first that I had to select File -> Open, and navigate over to the path you listed in your message. Next, I was able to remove entries, but when I tried to save the file, it said, "Couldn't save file". Is this a permissions problem? Is there a way to run this utility so it can save the file in question?

Thanks!
Joe
