ever connected your webOS device to a WiFi network with a common SSID which is used very often in different places?
I have an example: the DSL-router "AVM Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7170" is a very popular product in Germany and used in most private households. Unfortunately, the router uses its product name as the SSID (WiFi Network Name) and most people just don't change that.
You'll find WiFi Networks called "Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7170" all over the place.
Here is what can happen: a couple of weeks ago i was visiting a friend in a different city and connected my Palm Pre to his wifi-network called as mentioned above. Since then this SSID became a known network name to my pre. Back at home i realized that i have the same SSID in direct neighborhood. Every time i try to connect my pre with my home network it'll try to connect with "Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7170" first, finds out that the Password doesn't match, tries again and again and finally decides to choose my network for good.
So this happens all the time when i wander around the city and it drains battery power. Same happens if you've connected yourself once with a t-mobile hotspot which requires no password in the first place. There are hundreds of t-mobile hotspots around and the pre always wants to connect to it.
What i need:
A solution to delete known networks if you are not connected to them. The often given advice of using the "Forget Network" button only applies if you are actually connected to that network.
Are the known networks stored in the PalmDatabase.db3? How could i delete the settings in there? Thanks!
