Wifi hostname?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how to change the hostname that shows up when connecting via wifi?

by default it shows the mac address of the adapter.

The only reason this is an issue is because the wifi at the university i work gives the error "invalid hostname" and from the research i have found it is because it doesn't accept the mac address for hostname or at least the format it gives it in.

Also at some other locations i use it they use the mac address as part of the security so its frowned upon having my mac as my hostname..

That and it would be nice to give it a snazzy name :)

I have tried some methods that i found for other phones but they don't seem to work or they go away after phone is turned off.
