I can't change my WiFi name or password from Netgears
When I try to change the WiFi name from NETGEAR08 or NETGEAR-5G-1 to my own name, I get this error that says This DFS channel is not allowed to use because the Radar was detected before. You can change another channel or wait
Why can't I chane my WiFi name to something I want? I can't even change the WiFi password even when I leave the standard settings as is.
This is rediculous. It's my router and I should be able to change the name and password as I wish.

Sounds like you have selected on of the DFS channels. Suspect that until you correct for the error you are getting you will not be able to change names. So step one is select a non DFS channel. Might try channel 36 if available to you as that is none DFS.
If you scroll down in this document you will see what channels are DFS.
