Wireless networking: changing the router ID

This has very little to do with web design, but lost souls on the internet may find it useful, if they need to know how to change their wireless router's network name.

From Agaric Design's own Dan Hakimzadeh:

to change your router name:

plug into it with a cord.
open browser
default user is admin just hit enter, no pw
change ssid

I couldn't find an SSID field on my Linksys router though, and changing the router name (from WRT### to bob, for the record) didn't help either. So your mileage may vary.
