Giving my WiFi shield client a name?

I've been successful getting the HttpServer app up and running on the WiFi using the Basic I/O shield, even using WPA2 password protection. WooHoo! It took me a little bit to get everything where it needed to be and find my entry points, but it wasn't all that complex.

As you know, all of your computers and whatnot will be seen in the DHCP list by their names and IP addresses. I've been searching, but not finding, where in the DNETcK library I can set my "hostname" for my UNO32/WiFishield/BasicIOshield combination so I can tell one device from another. Is there such a place? Is there a convenient library call to do this?

I have the latest compiler and libraries installed on my OS X 10.6 system, yadda yadda... :)

Many thanks, DLC
