    Just moved from an old Linksys router to an Airport Extreme. Quick question - all of the wireless clients are showing up by device name except for my MacBook Pro, which is displaying in the client list by MAC address rather than device name. How can I fix this? :confused:

    My impression is, that the computer you are currently running the utility on, is displayed without name. Beats me as to why so.

    Just leave it a while and the MAC addresses will change to device names. (In my experience)
