Manage Wireless Networks Does Not Display Preference Order Properly

When I am trying to start my preferred wireless networks in the Manage Wireless Networks, by going into control panel, then the networks dont display in the set order. When I am trying to move a network up or down the list then the list display will not refresh to reflect this even though the move up and move down buttons do? For instance, I have 3 wireless network profiles and when I am trying to move the middle one up then the 'Move Up' button disappears as it should but the network remains in the middle of the list? Any ideas?

Even I have got the same problem but I cannot change the sequence to the networds at all. I have already tried the move-up/down buttons, also tried dragging, as well as the moe option on right click but to no avail. I am able to delete the networks but unable to move those? Can anyone also help me out please.

I had this same problem, but it went away when I re-enabled previews and filters in Explorer. (Control Panel > Folder Options > General tab > Show preview and filters.) Now the display order of the networks in Manage Wireless Networks again reflects their actual order of priority.
