Anyone know how to change the kindle wireless ID so as it will show as 'Kindle' in my router settings as opposed to 'UNKNOWN"?

Thanks

Yes, I know how to do that ON MY ROUTER.
How YOU do it on YOUR router, I haven't the faintest idea.

You will probably have to read the manual of the router, or ask in the router help forum.

My Kindle shows the same name for the router as my laptop.

THAT would be totally correct.

The question was about the name the router uses for the Kindle: so the other way around. Only useful, really, if you go into the Administrator settings on the router and look to see what is connected.
