Network Naming Conventions on XP
Posted on 2007-04-01
When I set up my wireless network with a desktop and laptop, somewhere during the process I thought I was naming my network: MYNETWORKNAME - a name I thought would appear whereever I viewed local networks. Since then, after scouring both my desktop and my laptops files and registries, I can only locate this name - MYNETWORKNAME in ZoneAlarm's/FireWall window where it appears as the a "trusted zone" as MYNETWORKNAME.
After installing Network Magic 4.1, my network diagram shows up as the router being named - Wireless Router(Belkin) which is what I wanted or expected that MYNETWORKNAME to appear!
Network Magic 4.1 will let me name the router, but what is this rouge MYNETWORKNAME on my PC and how do I get rid of it before I name my network??
