I have a ComCast WireLess Router and I have my PC my Tablet and Laptop all on my Network.


Now I setup a MAC Address Filter so I have my Router Auto Look for all Wireless Devices in my Home and I Ad them to the list one at a time.


And yes I have all my Devices On so my Router cal find them.


And all wotks good everything is Added to my MAC Address Filter list and woks.


But it has everything under a name of its own IP Address.


I know if I ad every Device by Hand myself I can type a name for the Device.


But when I have my Router find every Device it does not give me the optipon to type a name.


Can I do this some how?


Can I pick a Device in my MAC Address list and give it a Name even if my Router found it?

Many routers don't offer the option for naming within their router software.  It will pick up on the computer name through the network.  Third party programs  , mostly AV suites, allow complete network mapping and monitoring.  Older units (stand-alone) would capture all mac addresses for those attempting to access and you just need to choose the ones allowed from the list and add to the mac address list.  It will block all others.
