    same here , the only device that shows as a name is my pc, my 360 and nokia n95 just show as unknown

    ON mine the only names are the Wireless Laptops, my PC even shows as unknown.

    Devices show up with a correct name when they're first connected, but switch to "unknown.101" and similar pretty quickly.

    Wireless devices lose their name as soon as they go out of range, but get a name again once the DHCP lease expires and a new one is issued. Wired machines have their names until the router crashes (usually a couple of days).

    Could solve this by setting a shorter lease period - so the computer has to request a new one, reminding the router of its name. However, there's a problem.

    Most of the computers here talk to each other on the network. If one gets a different IP, the others can't connect (given that the router's DNS server apparently doesn't resolve local names correctly, and there's no way to set a MAC-IP mapping so that the same machine gets the same address)

    I don't quite get the DHCP Host name thing - I would like my PC's (XP & Vista) and my PS3 to reflect something othernath 'unknown.2' etc but I've look through the PC network settings and those on the PS3 and can't see anything relevent. All of these devices are wired if that makes a difference.
    Any pointers?

DHCP Host name is what your looking for.
you need to name each item ie. psp as psp and ps3 as ps3 when you setup each item for connection. so when you setup or edit the settings for your ps3 on your ps3 you need to look for DHCP Host name and name it ps3. etc
do the same for all.

For some reason the router says unknown_4 for my xbox 360 how do i fix that

Where did you see that message? Try to set static IP address on your XBOX. Go to Network Settings > IP Settings of your xbox and set it to Manual IP and type the numbers below

IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
DNS: Automatic

Reboot your router and xbox after that.
