Renaming Things in the Network Map

Q: Renaming Things in the Network Map

OK, I have looked for a bit now, and I just can't seem to figure out how to rename certain devices in my network map.

For instance, my Media Extender is named "unknown" and my switch is called "switch"...

Obviously my Computers are the PC names, and that part is fine...

This is a mere personal preference issue I realize, but I will be adding another swtch to my network soon, and another wireless access point this week, so I'd like to be able to easily distinguish all the devices...

My computers all run vista, so I'm not having the XP thing going on... everything is there.... I just want to rename.

I am sure I can rename these, but it just isn't coming to me on how to do it? Any ideas... I'm sure I'mm looking too deeply into this, its probably way too easy, so hopefully someone makes me feel stupid....

Thanks for reading

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I would like to rename my home wireless network to one that distinguishes it from others on my street. Not only that but I get the sense that if other networks near mine are named the same that the will not be listed separately in the list of "Available Netorks".
I tried renaming the network connection from the control panel, but this seems to have only renamed the connection as it is seen by this computer. I also run a work laptop and I want to be sure I'm on my network & not someone elses.

I renamed the wireless network (ESSID) of my router from one of my Windows XP PC's, and then found that my Windows 7 PC could no longer see any networks at all (there are several from neighbours in addition to mine).

Nothing seemed to help - Rebooting, uninstalling drivers for the wireless card, etc. Eventually I got it to work by giving the network card a fixed IP address, and the it could see all the networks again. I could then change it back to DHCP and it was still okay.

A:Solved: No connections available after renaming network

Static ip address is always smart way to go.

PC boots slightly faster too, although that's very minimal difference.

Hi guys,

Just installed W7 Home Basic today and not had a problem so far but i have a little annoyance that i hope i can fix.

Please see the attachment image where you see in ipconfig it says Wireless Network Connection 2, but in Network & Sharing Center it clearly says Wireless Network Connection.

At first i tried going through registry and finding anything that said Wireless Network Connection 2, and changed it to just Wireless Network Connection which seems to of partly worked as its now displayed right in the Network & Sharing Center but the actual network adapter when using ipconfig still shows 2, can i fix this?

Thanks guys.

i was wondering if there are any browsers out there or any apps that let me choose a different gateway than the one my computer is apparently forcing my pc to use perhaps i should elaborate i am logged into a corporate network using novell workstation client via my ethernet interface i also have a wireless network that i use to test an application i am developing for web use when i wish to test my app i must unplug the ethernet cable from my laptop open firefox IE Opera and connect to the test site when i want to come back onto the corporate network i must plug the network cable back in and things XP 2 windows in for interfaces using different network pro run a script that re-authenticates me onto the novell network here i feel more and more stupid each time i do this i have tried a few half-hearted attempts like changing the default gateway on my ethernet interface to be the ip using 2 network interfaces for different things in windows XP pro of the wireless router testing on a second pc i guess is an option but using 2 network interfaces for different things in windows XP pro i d like to be able to copy paste error codes and that kinda thing as well as it seeming a bit of a waste tying up pc s for this i am assuming that novell windows doesn t like me trying to use another interface on a totally different domain for my internet connection if a browser exists that i could specify which connection to use i e defining connection at the app level i guess i d be in luck i could do this on the unix without too much difficulty but the ways of the windows are unknown to me i was even toying with using VMWARE for this virtualising an OS and then tying up the wifi for my second instance but come on there must be another way i think i am not seeing the forest for the trees here thanks in advance for your help alex nbsp

I would recommend that you start backing up your files in preparation for a Windows reinstall. A fresh install could end up breathing new life in your system &/or it may help figure out if hardware failure is in fact the cause of your BSODs.If a fresh Windows install BSODs before you've had a chance to install anything else, it is extremely likely that hardware failure is at fault.Regards. . .jcgriff2

A:What things i should keep in mind when buying 2nd hand things???

1. Make sure they work and are compatible with the OS. You can check Windows Compatibility Center. (Win8)
2. Check to see if current drivers are available for the GPU.
3. See if updates are available for the Motherboard BIOS and chipset (INF files).
4. Make sure the memory modules are compatible with the Motherboard. (Speed, type, voltage, etc.)
5. Replace the Motherboard battery.
6. Verify that the PSU will support your hardware.

Good luck!

A:What things I should keep in mind when buying used things?

Suppose the answer changes based on who you are buying from. A lot of these things either work or they don't...

HDD - you could use something like Crystal Disk Info and hope everything shows up green. Or run a Long DST with Seatools (will take 5+ hours on large disks)
GPU - Visually inspect that it is clean, if possible have them run some benchmarks on it and monitor the temperature to make sure its reasonable and there is not artifacting or crashing happening.
Processor - If its less than 7 years old and hasn't been heavily overclocked it has an extremely high chance of being fine.
Motherboard - This is probably fine too if it is shown to work at all, check the caps to see none are bulging or leaking.
RAM - Nothing quick you can do here, ask them if it has passed multiple passes of memtest, you could have them show you, but it will take at least overnight before you get a real answer.
DVD Drive - if it burns disks and reads its fine. If it dies on you, not much you can do, things are like $16 new anyway, don't put a lot of thought into this.
PSU - just find out what one it is and google if it is any good. This really depends on how demanding your system is.

Basically you just have to have a little faith in who you are buying from and ask them if something doesn't work right away if you can return it.

I have a user who uses a laptop at home to VPN into the network so he can work from home. Everything works fine until he tries to rename a file. His computer gives him the error basically saying he is using invalid characters. He has tried to rename it very simple names (1, test, etc.). He can create folders and copy files into them and delete them but he just can't rename them. As soon as he gets back into the office he is able to rename folders and files using the exact same username and password he is using from home. Any ideas why he can't rename files and folders over the VPN?

Greetings, I'm looking for a way to rename files via windows right click shell, a hidden windows setting or power toy, that will allow me to rename two files that already have identical names, but different file extensions, to a new but still identical name, without windows adding in an incremental number in parenthesis to the second file. I know I can just manually remove the added tag by hand however I have about 18,000 files to rename and am trying to cut down the amount of time it takes to do this. For example if I have two files, one is named thisdamnsong.cdg and one is named thisdamnsong.mp3 and I want to change them to thissong.cdg and thissong.mp3 without windows causing thissong (1).mp3 to occur. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was wondering if it's possible to rename a device from what the driver used to install provided. My monitor driver works for 4 models, so whenever it appears in "Devices and Printers" or "Device Manager," it's named a series of model numbers rather than just the one that it actually is. ie. I have a SyncMaster 931BW but it's called "SyncMaster 931BW/906BW/931CW , SyncMaster Magic CX931BW (Digital)"

I already managed to rename my printer with no trouble, but there are a few other things I wouldn't mind renaming as well.

A:Renaming devices

You can change the name text in the '[Strings]' section of the .INF file included with the driver (edit it with Notepad), then run the setup.exe. Windows will then display that name in "Devices and Printers" and "Device Manager".

You could try uninstalling the drive from the Device Manager. Then reboot the computer - Windows will re-detect it and may give it the default name/description.

How do I rename a .tar filt to a .tgz file. The file has been zipped via winzip when I unzip I get several folders full of files. I am trying to do a manual firmware update for my stupid literati ereader.

A:file renaming

You don't just rename a .tar (Tape ARchive) to a .tgz (Tape archive GZipped), they are different formats.
You can convert one to the other, but both are used, typically, in the UNIX world. There are Windows and Mac programs that can handle both formats. But neither format is popular in the Windows or Mac worlds.

As for unzipping, it really all depends upon what you have put into the .tar or .tgz file to begin with as to what it gets re-constituted as. If it is just one file, or a collection of files from one directory, then you should not get more than one folders result. If it was some construct of a combination of folders, then the result may be the same construct of folders when unzipped.

I say MAY BE because some unzipping programs give you an option to get all the files back into the original construct, or you can override that and get all the files back in just one folder (you just better have unique file names, otherwise some files may get overwritten).

If all you want to do is replace a file or two, within the single compressed (.tar, .tgz, .zip .whatever) then some compression programs may give you that ability as well. Look into the features of your compression program.

Are the directories all in the same tree? If they all descend from the same folder open a command prompt in that folder. For example if they are all under C:\top open a command prompt in c:\top then enter this command

and hit enter.

Edit: It should work as long as there is only one .jpg in each folder. (I hope.)

A:Rootkit that keeps on renaming itself.

Hello -

AVG is reacting to one of your DAEMON Tools drivers. Ignore it, and try to teach AVG to leave it alone. You may want to upload a sample to AVG.

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs) if they exist:

Java(TM) 6 Update 7

This is outdated, and a security risk by having it installed still. Unfortunately, Java does not uninstall these older versions when you update, nor tell you that you should. Going forward, Java will overwrite existing installs, so removing older versions should not be required after this.

Leave Java(TM) 6 Update 11 alone, as it is the most recent.


Other than that, your logs appear clean.

Here is an easy way to add "Rename" to the right click context menu of the XP recycle bin.

Open Notepad.
Paste in the code below---
[codebox]Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


"Save As" say "recycler.reg".

Save to Desktop for easy access.
Right click it & choose "Merge".
Right click Recycle Bin & see "Rename" as an option.
Rename it to what you wish.

You can change the icon too.
That is simple.

Not worth going into.

Maybe someone else will expand on that subject.

I hope this helps someone.

Ok, so there are two options: You can either make windows show file extensions like file.exe, or you can have it hide known extensions, like file . What bothers me, is why isn't there an option that hides everything but click to rename it, the extension shows up?

Is this possible?

Alex, I don't believe that I have ever seen that. I firmly believe that the default should be to show file extensions instead of hide them. Big mistake and a great opening for the virus and trojan creators..

In windows vista, when I wanted to rename files in a folder all I had to do was right click on one file, rename it and click tab to move to the next file to rename. I didn't have to right click every single file, click rename, type the name, press enter and then move on. This has become a huge problem for me in windows 7 and I cannot seem to find an answer of solution to this problem.

I am okay with renaming every file by hand, but I want to be able to "TAB" between them and not right click and rename everytime.

I?m using Vista Home Premium 32 SP2
In some circumstances (and I can?t narrow it down), if I am changing a folder name in Explorer using the F2 on a selected folder name, a new folder is created, and the new and old folders both appear until the view is refreshed. (see image attached - Here I was adding and deleting a space character to force the error to show on the forum).
The old folder is visible, and it is also selectable, but I then get an error message (see other image) saying the location is not available.
Anyone else see this?. Is this behaviour by design? An error? Or what?

Hi Anscombe. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista.

The "TrustedInstaller" is the owner of record for much of the Windows folder. You do not have "permission" by him/her to edit any files. You can "take ownership" of the Windows folder and accomplish what you wish.

You need to first "take ownership" file in question and set the appropriate file permissions for it alone. This can be accomplished tediously via a series of screens through Vista or in the following manner:

Bring up an Elevated command prompt via:
START | type cmd into the start search box | right-click on cmd (cmd.exe) | select "Run as Administrator" | next to the prompt type the following exactly as it appears in the command:

takeown /f c:\windows\system32\catroot2

icacls c:\windows\system32\catroot2

Now try to rename the file.

i have a problem renaming files with long filenames. in fact, it won't even let me delete or copy or cut them.
i think this may be the problem: windows doesn't have a problem with letting me write long filenames. it does have a problem if i try to move these files into another directory (an error message comes up saying that the file name is too long to move). but i think the problem is that it DOES let me rename the folder that the long filename is in, rendering the file inside useless to me. (i don't actually know if this is the problem, i'm too scared to test my theory).

but anyway, i was wondering if there was any way of renaming my file. i've tried downloading a renaming program but that didn't work. is there something i can type into the 'run' thing?

A:problems renaming files

You can try doing it from a command prompt. If the file names are very long (>255), then you masy have better luck using the "command" console rather than the "cmd" one. Rename the files first with old 8.3 DOS names and then rename them from within Windows.

Start by going to Start > Run, and typing:
cmd <Enter>

Navigate to the folder where the files are and use the "ren" command to rename them.

If that doesn't work, try using "command" instead of "cmd" in the Run box.
