do not connect what does not need to be


Once I connected my so-called Smart TV to my wireless router to let it download some firmware updates.

The lesson I learned is that it offered basically no option to disconnect, or "forget" the configuration settings. Once it got the updates, I couldn't get it disconnected, and my only recourse was to assign my router a different password (or I suppose I could've renamed the wifi connection, but the result would've been the same - re-establishing the connection everywhere else).

To those who write this stuff: Provide a way to disconnect and remove the settings. This should not be optional.
