    The trick of changing the name of the processor is so good. If you know how to change the name of the processor then it’s so easy for identifying your processor. But by using this trick you may ace some problem like router’s password error. Whenever I am trying to do this thing then I faced Netgear Router Password Issuesfor many times.
