Renaming your wireless network connection

This article was been published more than a year ago. The information may be outdated.

Being one to muck about quite a bit with my computers, my wireless network connection is now called “Wireless Network Connection 5”, like so:
 
Wireless Network Connection 5
 
Annoying though it may be, it is, however, really easy to remedy. Here’s how:
 

  • Right-click the Wireless Network Connection, and select “Rename”
  • Rename

  • Call it whatever you’d like, and hit enter. I’ve called mine WLAN:
  • WLAN

 
This is really simple to do, and works flawlessly for both wired and wireless network connections. Enjoy!
