Can I set a Client Name for the Ooma?

Post by randyw57 » Fri Feb 22, 2013 8:47 pm

Is there a way to set a Client Name in the Ooma?
So it shows up with name rather than an IP/Mac address in my router information.
That's easy to do on things like iPads, iPhones, Windows PC's, etc.
Makes things easier to figure out.

Thanks.

The name is usually set by the manufacture in the device's bios. Ooma doesn't do this for the Ooma Telos. The Wi-Fi USB dongle Manufacture also doesn't do it. But my router allows me to add a name, when I'm scheduling the MAC/IP address for a device that doesn't have a name.
