AC1900 Model R6900P Renaming wired ports

I just set up my new router using the NetGear app and renamed the WiFi network; however, when I connected to one of the four wired ports, I see the default name that was associated with the router out of the box.  

How do I change the name associated with the wired ports?  What tool should i be using?  Can this be done through the app or does it need to be done by logging into the router?

Its not a function of the router. Its a function of windows. 

You can change it in windows if you feel comfortable modifying your registry.

Danger, here be dragons when playing with the registry.
