When you connect to a wireless network in Windows 10, the operating system creates a profile for that connection, in which it stores information like the network name (or SSID), the password, and the type of encryption that it uses.

However, some wireless networks may change their settings, and you cannot connect using their old profile stored by Windows 10. Here is how to solve this problem and forget a network in Windows 10:

All wireless routers have AC in their name, followed by a number. For example, you have routers that are called: Tenda AC9 AC1200, TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750, NETGEAR Nighthawk XR500 AC2500, or ASUS RT-AC88U AC3100. What does this AC followed by a number mean?
