cannot assign names to additional devices

Is there a limit on the number of named devices or wireless devices? I have been connecting new wireless devices but the router will not recognise / accept the names and just identifies as unknown and mac address.

Select the item, then click on Configure and you should be able to change the name

Yep thats precisely what I am doing and when I hit apply it reverts to unknown/mac-address.
This is for the last two devices I have configured out of about 6 wireless and 4 wiired.

Hmmm I've seen these routers misbehave a bit n this area.  Try a cold restart after manually dropping the PPP session.  Note you may need to manually reconnect the PPP session after the restart.
