Router name displays different what it says in their SSID of their respective router?

We have noticed that in our notebooks when we find the WiFi from within our office or colleague office, in order to connect to the LAN & Internet, the names that appear in our notebooks are different that what is designated within the Routers SSID field.

For example, a Wifi router SSID is Internet but it is displayed in our notebooks as Internet 2.

Why is that?

Should we be concerned?

Hoe can we fix this or do we have to?

Has the router been restarted and reloaded the config after it has been changed to 'Internet'?
Craig BeckCommented:
Windows is just showing the profile name rather than the SSID.  It's fine.

Don't think that the router being restarted made the changed to "Internet 2".  Initially when the situation happened, we didn't restart.  but afterward, yes;  Just turn on/off, but no reinitialize.

Can we delete or change the profile name? Where?
(we noticed that we disconnect completely from the Wifi and weeks later when we connect, the same thing; different name)

That's just the name of your wireless connection in Windows, you can name (or rename) them whatever you like.

Click Start->Control Panel, Select Network and Internet, and then click Network and Sharing Center.
In the task list, choose Manage wireless networks. then you can delete etc.

We have Windows 8 so we couldn't find it with your recommendation but we did remember that it is "profile", so we continue from here.
