Problem with Mac Wifi Password:
Recently I change the BSNL Wifi password in my home and I can’t join the Wifi network in MacBook Pro. Unfortunately there is no option in Mac OS X like “forget this network” option which is available on iPhone.
I tried deleting the network under the advanced network settings too, but when I go back to join the wifi again it doesn’t ask me for the password. Since it is still using the old password, it won’t connect.
