Thread: How to change network name in Windows 10?

    Default How to change network name in Windows 10?

    I recently got a new router. After plugging it in my network name is now "Network 5". I know why it's doing this, but I want to change the network name to something else.

    In Windows 7 it was very easy. In Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 they took it away. So how do you change the name to something else?

    Now unplug your Ethernet cable and connect again. Done!
    Thanks. I have renamed it successfully. Another thing, I want to get rid of the "Network 2" "Network 3" duplicates as I believe 2 and 3 were for Hotspot Shield and 4 is for direct ISP connection. The original network name is for my Belkin Router and the network 5 is now my new TP-Link Archer C20i.

    So is there any way to delete the ones I don't want, and probably keep the TP-Link, Belkin and direct ISP connections? Cuz i only see the "Network 5" in that list in local security policy.

    just delete them all, now connect to different connections according to your desired queue, this time you will get network 1, 2, 3 serially.
    Thank you so much. Worked perfectly
