Could some one please tell me if it is possible and if so how to change device network name on Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 running Android Jelly Bean v.4.1.2 official UK Firmware?
I am referring to the network device name as you would set for virtually any network device like a PC, Server, Printer, Tablet, etc.
When I look at my Virgin Media (Netgear) SuperHub wireless router "DHCP Reservations" settings, my Galaxy Note appears as "android-e033a1c0cf1e508d" which is not very friendly network device name.
So far this is what I have tried:
1) It does not seem to be possible to change name via Settings > About Device screen.
2) In Settings > Wi-Fi > Wi-Fi Direct I changed the device name and rebooted phone but this does not do the trick.
3) In Settings > More Settings > Nearby Devices > Device Name I changed the device name, rebooted the phone but this did not work - the SuperHub still shows the old network name as before.
4) Called Samsung UK Support and asked them how to do this and they said it is not possible. Seeing how it is done on other Android phones including some other Samsung models I think now why not?
Has anyone been able to do this?
