Hi @mervcoop


Welcome to the Community!


That is indeed confusing. You should only see that if you're connected via WIFI. Is your computer running under Windows? If yes, can you post a screenshot of the Network Connections screen?




Hi @mervcoop

Thanks for the screenshot you provided via email. It appears you're referring to the Network Profile itself. This name is automatically created by Windows. This is not setting that you can change from the modem itself. From what I gathered, this may require editing the computer registry just to change it.
