XFCE does not manage your WiFi access. NetworkManager, one of several
programs that does, often accompanies XFCE. Assuming you have

In the notification area (upper right panel), right click on the signal
strength widget, and select "Edit Connections...". Select a connection
you wish to delete. Click on the minus sign widget at the bottom.

You can also (as root) delete files
from /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/. I have not tried this. I
suggest you first turn NetworkManager off, and then back on when you
are done.

Does anybody read signatures any more?
