How do I change my wireless network name (SSID)?

When combined with disabling SSID broadcasts, see How do I disable the broadcast of my wireless network name (SSID)?, this helps to hide your network. It is more difficult for an unauthorised user to guess the name of a hidden network if you have chosen the name yourself.

When choosing a new SSID, we recommend that you avoid anything that could identify it with your company. Avoid, for example, your company name or location.

To change your SSID:
