    So I have a wireless router, works great, has for a long time now.

    But, when I go to set static DHCP, the "name" of my computer comes up as Matilda, and last week is was 'silknfresh'

    I know I didn't set these. What's goin on here?

    Are your router username and password still set to their defaults? Is the network secured? Maybe someone's messin with ya! :p

    (there's some fun to be had sending scary things to people's printers over their unsecured network... a picture of Big Brother normally freaks 'em out)
