    Is the wireless signal for that network provided by the Netgear device or the Time Capsule? If it is the Netgear device what model is it?

    Thank you Slydude. I don't know how to determine which is sending the wireless signal, it's a bit confusing.
    My Netgear is marked 'CE 0681' and it says 'Netgear Super Wireless ADSL Router DG834GT' on the associated blue and white instructions page.

    It says: "Wi-Fi is connected to 'Paul's Wi-Fi Network' and has the IP address 192.168.0.6". I presume that means the address of the network is 192.168.0.6.

    That's the router address. It is titled "Netgear Super Wireless ADSL Router DG834GT" and is a page full of data, together with instructions. But not how to change the name of the network!

    Actually, that's your router internal menu access. You can gain access by typing in your username and password. Check your router manual to find out how to log in to its menu. Once in the menu look for network name or "SSID".

    I don't suppose the nice Netgear setup instructions are still in the shipping box are they??
    Otherwise head off to:
    NETGEAR Support | Answer | Accessing the settings of a NETGEAR home router

    and if more info needed:
    NETGEAR Support | DG834GT | DSL Modem Routers
