    I noticed some strange thing today when i'm connected to the internet my terminal says:

    Willem:~ jankees$
    instead of
    jankees-van-woeziks-macbook:~ jankees$

    Does anyone know how this is posible? The strangest thing is, when i pull my networkcable from my macbook and then open a new terminal window the right name apears (jankees-van-woeziks-macbook:~ jankees$)...

    I hope someone know more about this...

    Kind regards,

    Maybe the DHCP Server assigns a name for your computer? Does this also happens with DHCP turned off?
    In Terminal type
    Code:
    ipconfig getpacket en0
    and check if the new computername appears there... en0 shoud be the Ethernet wired connected, en1 should be the airport link.
