    Hey there,

    I was just changing some settings on my netgear router when I clicked "attached devices", I expected to find my laptop and my dads laptop which is always connected, but now I have found a 3rd device and I have checked and it is my HTC Hero but it says;

    3 192.168.1.4 GOLDBALLS-PC
    How does that work? Is there anyway I can change the name of Gold Balls to HTC Hero or something?

    That's wierd. You're positive it's the Hero and not some piggy-backing freeloader nearby? GOLDBALLS-PC would be the sort of thing someone would name their PC I guess. I've never checked what my Hero is showing as on my wi-fi network, I'll check it out tonight and post my findings.

    I am 100% certain because I cleared the logs and then went on the internet on my Hero and the websites I went on showed up in the log along with the IP address that corresponds with the Hero.
