Okay, this is a problem I've never had before. I open my terminal, and rather than my regular DNS to hostname, the first time I opened my terminal it said 'blackberry-a75c/:~ host_name$' and then I rebooted my machine and now it says 'yeakle:~ host_name$'
Why has my original DNS name disappeared and now it gave me these two random new ones in it's place??? I'm not at home, I've only ever noticed this at school, but I don't know how that could have anything to do with it. I need some expert advise please! Thanks in advance!

I believe this to be related to DHCP. I think it is resolving the last device to have your current IP.

I don't get it either.
