Copying an pasting from the support answer in "quotes":

For issue number 1: how to change SSID name

"In order to change the 2.4 and 5 Ghz SSIDs you can go to Apps → Develop Apps → TEst Luup code and run the following code:

os.execute("uci set wireless.@wifi-iface[0].ssid=24GSSID && uci commit")
os.execute("uci set wireless.@wifi-iface[1].ssid=5GSSID && uci commit")
os.execute("/etc/init.d/network restart")

In the code above replace 24GSSID with the desired SSID for 2.4 Ghz and 5GSSID with the desired SSID for 5 Ghz.
After running the code wait for 30 seconds or so for the changes to be saved.
It should be solved in a future UI7 build but for the moment I don?t have an ETA. "

I tried, it worked for me

For more network problems and solution see topic/discussion:

Thats ridiculous. The UI clearly provides the ability to edit, but the edits don't stick. Seems like an incomplete/broken scenario.

1. Make it editable as it implies
2. If you don't want it to be editable and changed through LUUP code then make that clearer in the UI and grey out the box so there's no implication of edit in UI.
