    You might be able to change the name of the company in the inf file.
    I'm not sure how that might affect the network adapter in Win10. I had an older USB network adapter that I had to change the .inf so that it used a driver from the chip manufacturer, not the driver form the USB adapter maker.

    Win7 & Win8 were fine with the change, but Win10 would not install it due to driver signing.

    You can use device manager to determine the .inf file - on the details page, scroll down to inf

    Make a copy of the original just in case you have to replace it.

    Know that there is some risk of losing the function of the network adapter - do this at your own risk. I have not tested it.

    Look first, think second, do third.

    how can i change it ?
    Once you open your browser to the IP address for the device you should be able to change some things but you will need to have the username and maybe password to do so. Maybe even re-running the setup disc will allow it.

    Device Manager
    Scroll down to and expand Network Adapters
    Double click your adapter to show Properties
    Press the Details tab
    Property box: scroll to Inf name
    Value box: displays the name of the inf file

    You can also see the specific inf section in the inf file if you scroll down the property list a little further
