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.
