    Is there anyway to change the hostname on a zgemma h2h, mines showing as a Zgemma H2S on my router. Its probably part of the image so anyone know what file i need to be looking for to change it?

    I ask because if I can see it as that hostname then so can vermin....like to stay away from caged bars if you know what I mean!

    If you do an ip scan though you will see the original name shows still. It stems from an identifier in the Mac addresses.
