Any ideas if it's possible to change the name of A to B? B is correct. BTW it's the same printer. Thanks.

Hi Brink, I've tried that but the name is correct in that specific field in Printer Properties, but wrong under the network. Weird. I'll see if they have a webpage admin area.

Yeah, in that case there should be a printer page to sign in to and change it.

Yep there was. For anyone else with similar issue...

Establish printer IP (something like: 192.168.0.60) > enter this into your browser to access the Brother web admin panel. Default user and pass = (admin / access) > Click Network Configuration > Node Name. Change this to your desired name and then I had to disconnect ethernet cable from printer and reconnect. On reboot of PC it changed the name under Network.

All the best
