    How to find my device name, ( for wireless setup) 7th Dec 08 at 4:47 PM
    currently setting up wireless security for laptop with a netgear DG834G.
    So far i have changed the password on the login page.
    I have changed the SSID name
    I have turned off broadcast SSID
    I have the Mac code for the laptop i want to use, BUT.

    it wants the device name, and i have no idea what this means or where to find it. I assume it means the name of the laptop ? is that right :confused: ?.

    Please tell me what to do.
    Not ashamed to say ABBA are Great
