    Thumbs down gateway changing hostname?


    Hello all,

    I am coming across a strange error with my gateway. When I do a "ping", this is what I get below:

    k-63a5b848c6cb4:~ # ping simba
    PING simba.gateway.2wire.net (192.168.1.69) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 (192.168.1.69): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.041 ms
    64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 (192.168.1.69): icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.029 ms
    64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 (192.168.1.69): icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.023 ms
    64 bytes from k-63a5b848c6cb4 (192.168.1.69): icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.015 ms

    Does anyone know what the problem could be? Is the gateway doing something strange?

    Why is : k-63a5b848c6cb4 in the response when it should be simba?

    TIA

    What does this command says?
    Code:
    #hostname
    May be you have "simba" as netbios name?
