Renaming your wireless network connection

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!
