Change name for better security XAV 5421 - AV 500

Hi 

I have a Powerline wifi extender with a default name NETGEAR_EXT that works ok

I understand this is not secure

I would like to rename the extender device with the same name as my router to provide a single reference point and make the access secure

Regards

Graham
