Error renaming devices

Equipment: Home Hub 3

Software version 4.7.5.1.83.8.94.1.37 (Type A)

 

I'm trying to rename a device on the Home Hub 3 in Home Network -> Devices so it makes Administrating my network easier.  When using spaces i.e My Galaxy S4 Mini i get an error below:-

I'm sure this is the result of the latest firmware as other devices that i have renamed sometime ago include spaces and have been accepted by the Home Hub.

Re: Error renaming devices

I cannot use spaces on my hh4, so spaces may be not available now. Have u tried an underscore.

Re: Error renaming devices

Not tried underscore, TBH don't want to use underscore just spaces

 

Why change now when it's been fine in the past?

Because it was never permitted within the firmware in the first place, but the web interface did not do the error checking properly, which caused issues with things like port forwarding.

 

I would guess that this error has now been fixed. You can use a "-" if you do not want to use underscore.
