    Changing name on wireless network


    Im trying to change the name of my wireless network, but it keeps changing it back as well as adding 5ghz at the end of my name, regardless of how many times i change it. I just want to change the name of my wireless network without having anything 5ghz added to it.

    When you change it do you save it and with a lot of routers it has two names one for 2g and one for 5 g so if you change two g you may see 5g with the same name

    Some routers support dual speeds - 2.4 ghz and 5.0ghz speed. Samuria is trying to tell you, if you changed the name in the router setting to 1 of the dual settings you'll have to rename the other one.

    I have tried that many times.

    My router is a netgear C6250EMR.

    After making changes are you clicking the "SAVE" button?
