@fayadfami i got it! You were right, the dhcp name assign was changing it to something on the router. Thanks for all your help mate. This forum post helped - forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=152407

@fayadfami I just looked at the log file and the first line has the same 'unknown...' username in it, the whole line reads: Aug 26 00:30:02 unknown-04-0c-ce-e3-0d-c2 newsyslog[23504]: logfile turned over

This is the article I followed originally to edit the prompt, I think its definitely an issue with the user as editing the prompt is no problem, it still shows an unknown user - net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tools-and-tips/…

Thanks Josh but unfortunately this doesn't work for me either. I end up with: unknown-04-0c-ce-e3-0d-c2: ~ \u@\h\w$ →

Thanks aliasgar but this didn't work for me. My machine name is still the same as it was in the Sharing preferences pane. I tried to change it and reboot but it still say unknown in the terminal.
