Windows 7: Rename Network

Rename Network

How can I rename the network as my computer remembers it? The name is "Pentagon" which wast the name of the first router, and when we got the 2nd one we decided to name it Pentagon again, and my computer named it as "Pentagon 2" in the network and sharing center, but when I went to wireless networks, it was named Pentagon. Now the new router we just got is named "Pentagon 3". How can I make it say Pentagon again?
