    when you connect your ipod to your wireless router and you check the routers inteface and its connected devices you will see 'iPod' in that list. my question is, how do i change this name on the ipod? i can change its mac adress with a command in the terminal, is there a command like that to change its name?
    i need it to hide my ipod for the mean admins at my school, i know how the other pcs are named so i could make my device a little less obvious.

    The only thing they should be able to see is the mac adrress. the only way the router would know that its an ipod would be if the admin told it that.
