Change Device Name that appears on LAN
I have searched Google and many forums, but have not found a non-root way to do this so I figured I would ask...
When you connect to your WiFi network with your phone, the router assigns an IP address. In the DHCP table of the router you can see the device name (ID), MAC address and IP address that has been assigned, among other things.
The device name in the DHCP table is android_xxxxxxxxxxxxx and is just stupid. Is there an easy way to change the LAN device name in the phone without rooting?
I would think that it would be an easy thing to do since it is a common change made in computers (name a PC as its function ie Accounting, Sales, Johns_PC, etc)
