    Hello, Folks,

    In my Win7 installation, my network shows up as "Network 2" when I mouse over the Internet Connection icon in the Application Tray (lower right-hand corner). No big deal, but I only have one network, and it used to say "Network" at one time.

    How do I change it back to say "Network"?

    Thanks in advance!

    When you mouse over, click and choose open network and sharing center. Click on the little house or whatever icon is there, usually says home network or work network etc, anyway click on the icon itself and it will open another box that will let you rename it and pick another icon if you want. See attachments.
