Xfi show a device called Private-XXXX that is connected to my network. After some looking around checking MAC address (see post on amazon kindle board on finding MAC address on a Fire if you care:
so I know that Private-xxxx is my fire because xxxx is the last 4 of the MAC address so I add it to the household profile. so far so good.
Then I want to edit the device and change the name to Fire as I have done with other devices like cell phones
In device edit I have to select the device type, I pick tablet and it says nope this is not tablet.
So it will tell me what it is not, but not what it is. there are over 30 types, I do not want to play a guessing game thru that many choices.
If I go to device details on the device screen I see
Dang is there no way to edit posts on this board.
Anyways more info:
I was making a wrong assumion.
I thought the device edit screen would not let me change the device name because I got a"nope not a tablet" messge.
but that was incorrect, you can change the device name and just ignore the device type error.
That works for what I was trying to do, which was identify the device by a name I selected.
