    Edison device shows up on router's DHCP client list with no name (only MAC address) ...

      Hi -

       

      I'm hoping this is a mere oversight on my part but ... I've connected my Edison (image ww18-15) to Wifi using the Configure_Edison -- wifi command.

       

      It's connected and I can communicate with it both by serial and by SSH over wifi.

       

      Earlier I ran through the configuration to give the machine a name (again, using the Configure_Edison command). I can see from the command prompt that it's called "Edison_Green".

       

      However, when I look at my routers list of connected DHCP clients ... my Edison shows up with no name. I can see the MAC address, the IP Address, and other data. But the name field is blank. Other devices all have a name.

       

      Could someone tell me how to set a name so that it shows up on list of connected devices on my router?

       

      THANKS!
