Rename Network Interfaces

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to rename my network interfaces?

 

 

When I open up the Network Utility the interfaces show up as:

 

(en1)

(en2)

 

I would like to give them a name that has something to do with what they are:

 

(Wireless)

(Wired)

No, that's what the operating system needs to see them as. You also have hd0 and hd1 etc etc. It's one of the few drawbacks if OS X being UNIX under the hood I'm afraid.
