Hi there Sam,
  • Connect your computer directly to the router, using an Ethernet cord;
  • Open a browser like Firefox;
  • On the address bar where you see, "http"; type in, or or;
  • This should open the GUI of the router;
  • For the username and password use admin for password for the information needed;
  • Go to the wireless setting option;
  • Check the SSID name;
This is where you can change the network name.
