I am using Windows 7. I have a wifi router and it's SSID is Test, but Network and Sharing Center in Windows 7 is showing it's name Test 2.

Why it is showing this trailing 2 and how to remove this?


The Test 2 you are seeing is a network location, not the SSID. You can click on the icon (1) (usually a house, office building, or a bench) next to it and rename it (2). You can also select Merge network locations (3) on the same dialog and merge your previous Test network location with this one.
