I've never worked with a linksys, so please forgive me if this is totally off the mark...
I use an AirPort Express Base Station, and its network name that I see in the drop-down that, well. drops down when I click on my menu bar icon is set in /Apps/Utilities/AirPort Utility>Wireless>Wireless Network Name. (Edit: Sorry... That's after clicking on "Manual Setup.")
Hope this helps.
