    When I connect my droid over wireless, the router says the Droid's computer name is *

    Is there any way to change that?

    In windows explorer, right click on the *, choose rename. It is renaming the SD card just like you rename any volume.

    My SDCard is called Droid, I'm not referring to the volume name. I'm referring to the name the Droid referres to itself when on a network.

    Like the computer I'm on now is called Desktop_1, a laptop is Persons_Computer, etc.

    To liken it to windows, I'm referring to this setting:

    You can change the device name under the Bluetooth settings on your phone. This name seems to also effect it's network name.
