Ubuntu: How can I completely reset wifi settings?


I know this question has been asked before and I have yet to find an answer. Is there a way to completely reset wifi or networking settings of ubuntu 14.04 LTS? I want to reset them, not fix an issue I have.


To remove your connections from Network Manager run:

sudo rm -f /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/*; sudo pkill -9 NetworkManager  

Just make sure you have passwords for wifi networks that you intend to use before you do so.


To delete all connections avaliable to NetworkManager:

echo $( nmcli -t -f UUID con list ) | xargs -n 1 nmcli con delete uuid

(this lists all UUIDs of connections and one by one removes deletes each connection, similar in effect to Marcin's answer , only no need for sudo access)

To reinstall NetworkManager

sudo apt-get --reinstall install NetworkManager
