Rename D-Link 2640B Router
Posted on 2008-10-14
This is quite a trivial exercise but I'm trying to rename my router. I decided to do it (thinking it would be easy) but failed. I then tried harder and still failed. Now I've gotten stubborn and I don't want it to best me!!
Just to clarify, when I say I want to rename my router, I want to change the name as it is displayed in 'Network' (My Network Places) in Vista. Currently it is D-Link 2640B but I've been trying to call it 'My Router' or whatever.
What I've tried:
1. It doesn't seem to be possible to change it using the software that came with it.
2. I have connected to the router using telnet but I didn't get anywhere with that because when I type 'enable' to go to the enable mode "enable: not found" is displayed.
Thanks in advance for your help,
