If this has already been answered, my apologies. I didn't find this answer in the forums anywhere searching for "hostname" or "device list hostname".
My question is this: how is the Hostname determined in the Device List? It appears that some of my connected devices show a hostname as soon as they appear in the list, others initially appear with a blank hostname then eventually display a hostname, while still others never show a hostname.
For the last group, I might assume that's partially because the device never registers a hostname (if that's possible), but why the middle group that eventually shows a hostname?
It might be true, I'm not sure, that devices that connect via br0 always show a hostname, and that the two oteher groups above are only those connecting via eth1.
Related - I do see that if I set a static IP for a device and set a hostname, that this hostname appears on the device list.
