How can I rename my wired network?

by crzymidgetdragon25 / February 16, 2008 12:40 PM PST


I have a linksys router & I'm able to change the SSID for my wireless network, but I don't remember how to change the name of my wired network. (When I plug in the ethernet cable to the router the old network name shows up.) I'd appreciate it if anyone could tell me how this can be changed. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your help, I played around with the Vista menus & finally got it. It is a bit different from the XP instructions.
