You renamed your router, but did you change the name in the network settings?
You have to rename your networking cards too. They ALL have to have the same
network name, and make sure they're all on the same channel.

If it works for you then fine leave it that way. But often is brings
many problems. One of the reasons that it is a 'either or' situation.

Meaning many people have both the zero config enabled _and_ installed
the device drivers. In that case one is asking for problems.

Only if there are no problems. If one has a peoblem shutting off solves
