Renaming the network interface RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to change the network interface names from default Ethernet and Wi-Fi. (I have both)  I tried using the suggested powershell command line without success.

    Any suggestions or solution?

  • You should be able to just go into the network adapter settings - right click and choose rename.

  • pmshah,

    Could you please have a share about which command you have used to change the Network Interface name ?

    WIFI changes a lot in Windows 10, so the command to change its properties might not work.

    As Jeremy suggested, we may rename Adapter under control Panel by right click. Under:

    Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections

    Regards
