Hi,

This can be done in several ways. 

All settings can be changed via the CLI/SSH client. The LAN interface settings can be set in the /etc/config/network directory. Note that if you change the LAN name, you need to check if it has changed in other configurations, such as Firewall.

Alternatively, you can create a new LAN interface via Web Ui Network> Interfaces page, and then delete the existing one.

Best regards.
