Windows 7: How do I remove annoying suffix number from wireless network name ?

How do I remove annoying suffix number from wireless network name ?

Hi

I've just upgraded my ADSL router, and renamed the network SSID (in the router) to my preferred name.

Windows detected it fine, but when I hover over the wireless icon on taskbar it says:

"...... 2" (where ...... is the name of my network)

In the Network and Sharing center settings (Control Panel), the network shows up as "...... 2", but when I enter Manage Wireless Networks, the network is listed as "......", without the suffix !!

So I can't see a way of renaming it so it shows up as "......." in the Task Bar.

Can anyone advise ?


thanks

Hello swayzak

Try this go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center. Click on the picture icon of your network (home/public etc) You can change the name there, then at the bottom click merge/delete network locations and you will be able to remove or merge any duplicate connections.
Hope this helps
