'Shredder' identification in WiFi devices list isn't really ideal

When connecting Haiku to the internet through WiFi, the device running Haiku shows up as 'shredder' to the user in his/her router interface. Ideally this name would be customizable by the user, but at least a more descriptive name (for example containing the word 'Haiku') or just a less daunting name would be better... (Then again, all of that may be a lot of work to achieve)

This is just the default hostname of the system. We probably should make Installer able to change this, instead of just silently defaulting...

I see it's implemented now, thanks!

Yes, it's now easy to change the hostname in network preferences.
