      Can I change the name of my Netgear router?

      Call me a hackneyed old hippy but I wanted to change the name of my router, so it's not called "SKY1071" or whatever....

      Is there a way of doing this?

      Ha, ha. It's bad enough have a dish on the wall, without all the neighbours realising you use Sky's broadband service too. That was the first thing I changed when I got the router.

      I'm such a snob.

      Exactly!!!

      "I am not a number Stoke Newington!"

      I've been shouting that out my window all week. In a posh, north London accent.

      Thanks for the tip by the way. It worked, and I am, once more, a human being.

      Vive la revolution. It will be televised, and I will Sky+ it.
