  1. Network Interface Won't Accept New Name


    Hello,

    I was working with someone on their PC and after their attempts to change their Ethernet interface name to simply "Ethernet", Windows threw an error stating that the name was already taken. Currently, they have it set to "Ethernet 1".

    I went and checked every adapter and ran an ipconfig but failed to find such a device.

    It might be worth mentioning that this PC is a laptop and doesn't come with a dedicated Ethernet port. Currently, this person utilizes a dock/hub with a port on it and connects that to their laptop via USB-C.

    As you might have guessed, this laptop is fairly new and is running Windows 10. Additionally, this person has a Cisco VPN installed, which added another interface. This interface, however, doesn't have "Ethernet" as its name.

    My first attempt involved having this person boot in safe-mode and remove all their network adapters.

    That only seemed to reindex the interfaces but still wouldn't default to simply "Ethernet" as it is on my own machine.

    Is there a reason why this wouldn't be possible?

    :)

    After Windows 10 update, signin screen won`t accept my pssword.

    Sign-in screen won`t take my password after Windows 10 update on a new HP laptop. I had setup a pin login but now asks for Microsoft password which I wrote down and have used before but will not accept now.

    How to rename network interfaces


    Hi,
    I've got a new DSL router and configured it with the same settings as previous.

    I already tried and successfuly renamed Network Adapters as they were before, it is now Ethernet and Wi-Fi but it is still not enough. netsh interface show interface command still saying Ethernet 2 and Wi-Fi 2 after reboot.
    I also tried netsh interface set interface name=”Ethernet 2” newname=”Ethernet” but didn't help
    Any suggestion to fix it ?
    It's not a big deal, but still I would like to have it sorted.

    Thanks
