    Hi, I am using Airport Extreme as Router and Express as repeater.

    Anybody knows how to rename hardware address under wireless clients in Airport Express/Extreme ? Currently it just shows numbers.

    I would like it to be renamed, so I know which of my Mac devices are getting the data from.

    You can change the MAC address if you really want to, but even if you do you're limited to hexadecimal characters (0-9, A-F). It's pointless, and probably not necessary.

    That will show whatever the machine name is in the Sharing area in System Preferences.


    For iOS devices, just single click the device name in iTunes and rename it whatever you want and that too will show up as Client ID in the list.
