It's just a cheap WLAN/VOIP router and NAT...
Is there a way to do netBIOS broadcasts with *ubuntu?
BTW: In my company's network, we have a kubuntu Box with the correct
settings in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and it doesnt report it's name to
our Windows 2000 DHCP server. Same issue, but this cannot be because
of the netBIOS thing, does it?
Thanks for answers
