Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue
you should be able to follow the below steps to change the hostname on the HP-Envy
You can then amend the hostname to whatever you wish
Let me know how that goes
Yes this worked. Thank you.
I also have a Nest Thermostat. Would this be a similar process to rename that device?
I have the IP address for the thermostat but nothing pulls up, the page just hangs.
Hi Paul, yes in theory it would be exactly the same for the thermostat
although some devices can have 'flaky' web interfaces and work best in Internet Explorer for example
I'l just on way home right now but will be back in front of laptop in 30 mins so can double check for Nest then and let you know
Gotcha, yep I'm using a Mac (Safari).
no problem - will update you in 30 mins or so....
Great, Thanks Steve.
apologies - got slightly held up
The nest thermostat functions slightly differently
once the device is connected to Wi-Fi and connected to an online nest account
Hi Steve, yes I have it connected and I have an online account. It looks like I can change the name through the online account. I'll give it a try.
should be under Settings there but I believe it might be restricted to several choices they provide
but should help
Looks like just the location name vs the device name, perhaps the same thing?
yes - should be the same based on their support pages
It looks like my airport utility is labeling it by it's serial # XXXXX its name. Not sure I can this...
no, I don't think you can modify that - checking on mine but nothing seems to allow that
Thanks for checking. Excellent service.
happy to help
let me know if you need anything at all
