I have renamed the wireless network(s) but when I connect a device via Ethernet cable it shows connected to "Zyxel_232B_5G"... can i change this to my own network name?

    Hi jdoc_18,

    May I know how you check your Ethernet cable name? I cannot find it on my laptop.

    I think “Zyxel_232B_5G”  means your VMG3825 wireless 5G SSID, have you check your 5G SSID be modified or not?

    Thanks again for the reply, I have an ethernet cable connected to my laptop and the WiFi turned OFF. I click on the little network symbol in the corner (W10, looks like a little monitor with a network cable on it), and it says "Zyxel_232B_5G   Connected"

    As per a previous post I made, both my 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Wireless SSID's have been renamed to something else of my choosing (and are actually called the same thing!).

    As above, Wifi Is also switched off.

    Hi jdoc_18,

    There is no setting for the wired cable name in VMG3925. I think that is Windows10 system storage network name into its profile automatically.

    FYR, below is a link discusses this similar issue from Microsoft Community forum, you can have a look on it.
