From a Command Prompt, enter

netsh interface set interface name="mynet5" newname="mynet"

Actually, you can set it to anything you want, Windows doesn't care.

Thanks for reply.
I have decided to live with the problem as i am connected and it is running well with a good signal and don't want to mess with it any more as i am fed up reconfiguring it.
i have bookmarked this in case things change.

cheers
