I placed this network question here because it's strictly a Windows 7 question.

Opening Network and Sharing Center within Windows 7 gives one a nice picture map of one's network.

View your basic network information and set up connections -- reads the first line across the top.

Under the word information,  between the monitor picture and the globe picture, is normally a picture of a house and a name [right now: ATT8605] assigned by something.

Under that picture, to the left a little, is the picture of the house again, and a blue label Home Network,

and a name [ATT8605] assigned by something.  As noted, right now both places read ATT8605.

I totally forgot how to make both places read: StollerGroup.  It's not simply changing an adapter name.

Some time ago, I made the computers read StollerGroup in both of the above places.  I had to reInstall W7pro in one laptop, and I totally forgot to how rename ATT8605 to StollerGroup.
