Is there any file that i can edit to associate the Mac address of the device with the name i want ?
None that I am aware of.
- wired devices are connected if they show in DHCP tab
- wireless devices are connected if they show in Wireless client tab
Yes, but they will also show in the DHCP Clients tab
Some devices will allow you set up a Client ID for the device, in which case it will appear under the DHCP Clients tab. But, the Client ID will not appear under Wireless Clients.
I've found an xml config file in ~/library/application Support/Apple/Airport/
There is a
missing, that I have added. Now all DHCP devices have disappeared in Airport utility (but are still connected); i guess they will reappear once the dhcp bail has been renewed, (in one day) but that won't change anything, as this xml file is likely an output, not an input.
I'll keep you posted
