Wondows 7 - Office 2013 - How do I change ny Network Name

When my PC hard drive was reformatted and the programs loaded on to it the Network name should have been DUFRESNE. However, it was left "Network".

Question: How can I rename the existing network name "Network" to "DUFRESNE" or "Dufresne" . What steps do I need to follow to do this.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
