    I am using my Airport Extreme in bridge mode, how do I see the computers names instead of the Mac Addresses when viewing them in Airport Utility?

    For example:

    Delmar MacBook Air instead of the mac address.

    I have both Airport Utility versions 5.6.1 & 6.3.2

    Open Airport Util then select your device then option click the edit button and you will get the screen below.

    Thanks for the help but I already know how to view the list of connected devices in Airport Utility. What I want to do is when I view the connected devices list, see the devices name instead of the mac address or ip address.

    For example Delmar MacBook Air instead of the mac address.

    If you look at my screenshot it shows you exactly that. I blurred it out, but if you look it shows "my name-Macbook" then the IP and MAC address below that. Same thing for "my name-iPad Air" below that.

    This is not the connected devices list, this is a "summary" tab brought up by option clicking the edit button.

    Unless I am missing something this is the device name and IP plus MAC address exactly like you said you want. :confused:
