Go to Network Configuration:DNS:Hostname. Note that this only controls
the name on your local computer. On other computers you will need to use
the official registered name from Comcast of the IP address to refer to
this computer. You can also use one of the Dynamic DNS providers
available to officially register a name for you but it wont be in the
Comcast domain name.
