No Ubuntu hostnames in DHCP logs

We have a wireless router here which acts as a gateway and DHCP server.
When checking its logs the Windows based clients are listed using the
computer names. However, Ubuntu based machines have a blank hostname and
its a little tedious matching up MACs with IPs. What setting must I
alter on these ubuntu machines?

Many thanks
