You probably need to goto your routers web page and change the name there.

While you are there it is a good idea to setup at least WEP security if you have not done so already.

To get there, usually, while you are connected, you can look at the properties of your connection, and get your default gateway's IP address.

In a web browser, put this IP number of your default gateway into the browser's address bar and click go. It should load your router's administration web page. If it has a password and you dont know what that is then it is probably the default password.

To get the default password for your router, into Google search for example if you has a linksys router, search Google for "linksys default password" this should bring up the default password for a linksys router. usually a combination of "admin/password".

Once logged into the administration web page, the network name is listed under "SSID".

I cannot find my WEP key on Router N with Belkin.


You changed the network key.
Make sure that you will connect your computer to the router with the cable to change the wireless settings of the router.
Do not change the wireless settings of the router using the wireless computer.
open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings.
Change the name of the wireless network also.
create a new network and try to connect to the new wireless network.]
I think you did not change the name of the network and your computer might be trying to connect to the same old network name with the old settings.

Change my settings from wep to wpa I have a belkin 54g


when you change the wireless security on the router , it is recommended tht you will change the wireless network name also ( SSID ). Because when you try to connect to the wireless network on the computer, your computer will try to connect to the same old network name with the old wireless security settings. To avoid this you can change the wireless network name. WPA is supported by windows XP SP2 and above operating system.
If the operating system on your computer WINDOWS XP SP1 and if you are trying to connect using the windows utility then you would not be able to connect to the network .

I dont know how to change the SSID Name and WEP Key.


You have to change it in the printer settings, not in the router! Otherwise you'll lose connectivity in all the other computers that use this router.
The SSID is the name you gave to your wireless network, and the WEP key is the password you set for your wireless connection.
