    W8.1 How to reset Network name?


    OK, so I have a "Network 2" in my Connections panel, after getting a new router for my home network. I'm curious as to how I can reset this network name?

    The original Connection was simply called "Network", and I wonder if I can create an identifier for my network connection that shows up on my Settings Charm, for example "HomeNet".

    Sorry I don't have any screenshots right now, but if required, I can set one up.

    In control panel click on network then click on change on adapter settings. High light the connection you want to change and select rename.

Hi guys. I'm wondering if it is possible to reset usage statistics of a metered network connection, for example, daily at 12 midnight? Are there any explicit commands in the task scheduler that does just that? BTW, I'll insert this elephant here because it looks wacky :dinesh:
