Windows 7: Wireless Network Name

Wireless Network Name

Hi

I'm trying to figure something out in the Wireless Network settings that's a trivial thing, but bugging me...

If I look in my network settings in the control panel under:

Code:
Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections
I see the different connection options I have in my Windows 7. In this case, there are three of them:
  1. Local Area Connection [Network Cable Unplugged]
  2. Wireless Network Connection [Framus 3]
  3. Microsoft virtual wireless (I renamed this one at some point) [Not connected]
What I'd like to know is: how can I rename #2 from "Framus 3" to just "Framus"? When I select "rename", it lets me rename "Wireless Network Connection" to something. But I want to change the name "Framus 3" to something else. Is that possible?


Thanks

Hello mbratch,

The "Framus 3" name would be the name of your wireless device (ex: router) that you are connected to, and is used for the profile name by default.

You could use either option in the tutorial below to change the profile name to what you want instead.

Network Name and Icon - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Oh perfect. Thanks. I didn't even notice that the icon allowed a "click".

I've had wireless on this pc before. A while back, we had a tech come out from out internet provider to fix a few things, and we told him we already have a few other devices on our wireless network, so it may be a better idea to connect through an ether-net cord to our main pc for a more secure...

Network card name reporting incorrectly in wireless network list area
My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. ...
