    I am new to Mac's and have been in the PC world for many years. I have done a search on here but have not found the answer. In my routers DHCP table the Mac's are showing up as New-Machine, where do I set the name of the computer so it will show up in DHCP?

    Thanks in advance for any help!!!

    The computer name was set, still it is not showing up with that name on DHCP table on the router. Just shows New-Machine. All of the windows machines are showing up with their names.

    I just had to force the DHCP renew and the machine name showed up.
