Then surely you have another new thing to learn about.
I'm quite familar with the contents of post #7, since I wrote it myself. I was questioning the ability to change the Network Name from the 'Change adapter settings' link.
Network names cannot be changed from the Adopter Settings, it needs to be changed by clicking the name of the network on the Network & Sharing Center screen.
Thanks for posting I did exactly the same, I havnt read the 2nd/3rd pages so I cant comment cos I got the answer I needed (Click on the picture of the Bench or whatever) I googled for "windows 7 name a network", which brought me to this thread. and my problem is solved. Thanks for taking the time. The whole problem is another example of M$ crapping down their OS, they make it so simple ONLY an idiot could (or would want to) use it.
Great Job on the Hidden Options! Haha, I been looking for hours on multiple occasions! Thanx again
Hi, Where are you when you click on what icons [Network and Sharing Center]? "Had same problem, and it turned out you can click on those network connection icons, and then a window will pop up to allow name changes. " Thanks, Joe
Thank You for this, Just what I was looking for!!!
Incorrect. For an UNDEFINED NETWORK, although you are able to click the network icon, but you cannot change the network icon, neither you can change the name of the network.
I was looking to reanme the network from "Network 2" to "Netgear-N", I see this doesn't change network type and such, but I was only looking to change the name.
Oh mighty master I do.. actually I do want to say thanks tho because you actually had a relevant post that actually answered my question... Ive been trying to figure out how to change that forever and you helped in a matter of seconds!
