Resetting Ethernet Connected Device Name

Hi ,

 

I was changing a few names of the devices connected to my modem on the virgin media hib settings. I accidently changed the name of the wrong connected device by ethernet. Is there a way I can reset it to the default name?

 

Reason I ask is, because it was my cctv cameras that are connected to the modem and now they have gone offline. This was what I changed last and nothing else. So I assume it was possible related.

 

 

Appreciate any help

Re: Resetting Ethernet Connected Device Name

Renaming devices won’t cause them to disconnect.

You could try disconnecting it then reconnecting it again.

Re: Resetting Ethernet Connected Device Name

Hi kala123, thanks for your post - sorry for the delayed response.

 

Further to gary_dexter's suggestion above - if that doesn't put the name of the cctv back to default you may need to factory-reset the hub, that will certainly do it. However all settings/passwords will revert to default and you'll need to reconnect all devices manually.

Re: Resetting Ethernet Connected Device Name

From my understanding of what's happened it's not a bug - kala123 changed the name manually and wants to revert it back to default - probably because they don't remember what the specific default device-name was - if they know what the device-name was they could rename it manually again. If not, and if disconnecting/reconnecting doesn't help, then a reset would be the only solution.
