Can't RENAME a LaserWriter IIg on EtherTalk

I recently upgraded my II NTX to a IIg so I could add the IIg to my home ethernet lan. I attempted to rename the IIg using Apple Printer Utility, the LaserWriter Utility and the NAMER but could not change the name while connected via EtherTalk. The utility programs said the name was changed but, the new name did not appear in the chooser. On LocalTalk, I could change the LocalTalk name and it correctly appeared in the Chooser. However, I do not wish to use the printer on LocalTalk.

How do I change the printer name in EtherTalk?

Thank you.

Never tried to do it on EtherTalk. I'm going to refer you to comp.sys.mac.printing. Try a post on there. They don't know much about hardware problems, but I'm sure someone can help you with your software issue.
