what is the network message that fills in device "name"?

Can anyone advise me what network message is used to obtain the information from a device that is then displayed in the "name" column?
I have been experimenting with Arduino running mDNS (Bonjour) and this is not it, the arduino just has it's IP address filled in as "name". Other devices on my network present an actual name in this colum (e.g. WDTVLIVEHUB) and I've tried to use Wireshark to capture the message(s) that send this data but there is such a flood of messages it's hard to work through them.
Suffice to say it's not Ping and it's not mDNS(Bonjour) so any advice would be gratefully received.

It is NETBIOS Name
You need to go to Settings-Options-Resources and choose NETBIOS Name.

Sorry, but there is no Option "NetBIOS Name" to choose. There is only "NetBIOS Group" which ist the NetBIOS Group column. But what fills the Name column? I have some failing entries in the Name column as well and did not jet find a way
to get it corrected.
