Just quickly, when you say woosh wireless do you mean woosh connection with a modem/router. Or do you have a usb stick?

OK so you need to change via your router. Do you know the model of it?

I personally have to go to to get to mine but yours may be different. Once you do get into the router, just look for the settings and change the SSID. It should be simple...

Look at/around the router. What brand is it? Shape? Any LEDs?

Usually the model number will be displyed somewhere on the unit, possible on the bottom.

Are you at home or connected to the network you want to change? If so type or into your browser's URL bar and see what you get.

You could also go into network settings/right click on the router icon and click open. If you haven't accessed before the username may be admin and password left blank.
