I can not figure out how to change the name on my time capsule.  As I am thinking that we will have additional drives in the future I would like to figure out how to give them names that will mean something to us for the purposes of put things in the proper spots.

Time Capsule 802.11n (4th Gen)

    What OS? What version airport utility?


    This is different in different utilities.


    In v5 utility it looks like this.. and is far superior IMHO to v6 toyland version.


    You can use v5 utility in Lion for which it is downloadable.. and it can be inserted with some simple manipulation into ML.


    BTW use proper network names.. short, no spaces.. pure alphanumeric.
