On Windows 8.1, a wifi network was marked as "Forget", but now I want to connect to that network and I can't even see the network.

I tried adding the connection manually, and that didn't work. I deleted the profile associated with the network, and restarted, but that didn't work. So how can I fix this?

Can other devices see this network because all "Forget" does is removes the store creditionals for the network. – Ramhound Jul 30 '14 at 16:16
They could, and they could connect fine. But after hitting "Forget", it didn't show in the list at all – Dugan Jul 30 '14 at 16:20

Okay, apparently the issue was I needed to use the "Hidden Network" option and be sure to type in the network id there (being sure to capitalize correctly).
