In Windows 7 you opened "Network and Sharing Center" and then clicked the icon, here it would then let you change the name and icon. - The icon is gone in Windows 8.
*Please note I'm trying to rename the network itselt, not the network connection / adapter.
At the moment it is listed as "Network 3" which isn't particularly helpful for identifying the network. - Windows 7 on the same network seems to identify it by the router name.

Just some clarification - this is what you want to change. And yours says Network 3?
Could you post up a screenshot of yours please.. Just so we are all clear what your seeing and want to change.
edit: Ok not sure if you can do this with some clicking anywhere like you use to be able to do. I am not anywhere near up to speed on win8 changes.
But you for sure can change it here
