What is the name that appears below "Local Area Connection"?

Recommended Posts

In Windows 7, when I go to Control Panel->Network and Internet->Network Connections

 

I see "Local Area Connection" and under this, above the name of the ethernet adapter is a name I wish to change.

 

What is this name and how do I change it?

 

Thanks.

 

*edit This is in "tiles" view in explorer.. when I change it to "details" it says it is 'status' but still no clue how to change it!

 

Figured it out! In Network and sharing centre, I had to click on the ICON of the network, which gave me a field to change the name. Yay!
