Actiontec.  It is also my DSL modem.  Qwest claims that it has custom
modifications to enable it to work on their network.  Yes, it is running
DHCP.  There are 6 devices connected to the router, 4 by wire, 2 by Wifi. 
All have a name associated except the Nokia.

I don't understand.  The router is getting the name of each device that
connects to it from itself?  I didn't set the 5 names that it is accurately

I am using WPA.  As far as I can tell, the Actiontec router does not support
