how can i change my WIFI hotspot name on my laptop?
by try10 - 3/20/12 7:38 PM
this has been going on for months... i dont usually post on these types of forums, cuz i usually find the answers before posting..
anyhow, i cant find the answer to this.
i know it sounds simple... just change my computer name...
but that doesnt do the trick.
basically i am trying to change the wifi name that the laptop sends out.
it is currently my name, and i wish to change that.
i have gone into system prefs and changed the computer name to JOE.
but when i turn on INTERNET SHARING... my phone sees the wifi as my JOE SCHMOE'S MACBOOK PRO.
even when i click on the wifi sharing icon on the right, top menu bar, it says JOE SCHMOE'S MACBOOK PRO with a check mark by it.
can someone please help me?
thanks so much, in advance.
