funny Wi-Fi name - drop it like it's hotspot

Tired of the boring name that’s assigned to your Wi-Fi network? If you have ever browsed the list of networks in your area, you’ve probably found that the majority are named after the brand of router broadcasting the wireless network.

In order to change that name, you simply have to log into your router through your Web browser. Basically, you just enter a string of numbers into the URL of your browser. You can find this by looking on the bottom of your router or simply searching the Net for your router brand. Netgear routers, for instance, use to reach the admin screen. At this point, you just navigate through the admin to find the Wi-Fi network name, then change it. Here’s a good walkthrough on PCMag, if needed.
