Windows 7: LAN naming issue

Solved:LAN naming issue

How can I change the LAN from TLC_Home to something else? Also, I would like the wireless network to read Hippocrates not Hippocrates 2. I bought a router off craigslist and I can't figure out how to change these names? Thanks.

Click Change adapter settings on the left pane in Network and Sharing Center. Select a connection you want to rename, right click it to open context menu and select Rename.

OK.

Click the network type symbol, for instance house for home network. Type the name you want to use, click OK to save it.

OMG thank you, that was driving me nuts (I'm OCD). By the way, what program did you use to annotate your screenshots? I like it.
