Wired Network Name different than Wireless Network Name?

I have a very strange question.

At the apartment complex I was living at before with a roommate, we had a name for the network.  When I moved to my new apartment, I factory reset my Eero Pro and gave the network a new name.

My laptop when plugged in directly to my network switch then to the Eero still shows the old network name.  All wireless devices show the new network name.  Is there a way to fix the wired network name?  I've been searching in the app to no avail.  Thanks!

  • Hi RemnantRD

    Where are you seeing this wired network name?  Wired networks do not have a name, wireless ones do so a device can choose which to connect to.  Wired networks don't have this as your device will connect to the network it is wired to.  I am suspecting this wired name is the name that Windows or the Operating System is giving the wired network for ease of use/identification.
