Can't change name of LAN network

    WRT54Gsv2 running Tomato 1.28. Just bought a router off Craigslist and even after reset and updating Tomato firmware, I cannot change the name of the LAN network. I have changed the wireless SSID, but the LAN still has the name from the previous owner.

    How do I change the SSID of the LAN so that is will match the wireless SSID? Thanks

    What do you mean by 'the LAN network' - the domain or the router's hostname?

    I've attached a screen to clarify. Sorry for the confusion.

    I would like the Wireless to say Hippocrates and the LAN to say Home

    If you did a thorough NVRAM clear then there should be nothing left from the previous owners configuration. Having said that, the LAN doesn't have an SSID as that only applies to wireless. Perhaps you mean the Router Name, Hostname, and Domain Name? If so those are in the "Basic -> Identification" section.

    I think he got it fixed, PMed me since his clarifying posts were apparently awaiting approval. So yeah we were all thinking at the router level, since the question was a bit vague and, well, that's what we do, hah. But he was wanting to change the Windows 7 network name, which seemingly inherited the original router SSID when originally set up. Reconfiguring the router wasn't going to change that so he had to do it in Windows.
