Hi All,

Re: Asus RT N56U Clients List

Hi
This is set by the devices themselves rather than the router. Here's a guide (but do it at your own risk!):
Quote
1. You're device must be rooted.
2. You must have Root Explorer (or similar file explorer that can view system folders).
3. Open Root Explorer.
4. Browse to /system click Mount R/W it will change to Mount R/O.
5. Select build.prop and add at the end of the codes add
net.hostname="your desired device name" (without the quotes).
6. Save and exit.
