    Need machine name for wireless network

      My wireless network provides security by requiring the machine name to be registered with the router.  How do I find the machine name of my nookcolor device?  Please advise.  Thanks.

          I assume you mean the MAC address. You can turn off MAC address filtering on your router or white-list your nooks address Note that you have to register your nook before you can get to the menus. Just go into the settings of your Nook and select Device info and then select about your nook color and it will list your MAC Address. If you have logging turned on you may be able to just look at the log for the last MAC address that tried to connect.
