Nighthawk AC1900 Modem Model C7000 - How to Change SSID

I have a C7000 Nighthawk AC1900WiFi Cable Modem Router which I bought a few years back (2016?).  When i installed it, I changed the SSID to something different from Neatgear78. Recently the system seems to have done a factory reses. In doing so the SSID I assigned disappeared. I had to use the original SSID and factory assigned password to get back up and running.  For security purposes, I have changed the default password but cannot figure out how to change the SSID.  I am using this on a Windows 10 64 bit PC as well as WiFi for my mobile devices.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

   C7000, not C7000v2?  Look for "Model" on the product label.

   You might try this radical concept:

 

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTFM

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for
"Types of Logins" and "Specify Basic WiFi Settings".  Further reading
might not hurt, either.  Note that there may be more than one "the
SSID".
