I have Samsung 40" UA4K5570 and the hostname of this device is "localhost"

This is a critical bug in the OS. It is creating lots of problem in the my network. Please release a fix for this bug. Lots of people are facing this issue.

But, the support of samsung is just filled with non-technical people. They can't help us, this is the only forum I found to be usefull. 

Here is the link to the samsung forum of another guy facing same problem:

Seems Samsung won't care that their software engineers don't even know the basics of network function. It's out of this world why they choose to name all their devices "localhost". This is such a bad mistake that it should be fixed asap in the samsungs end. It seems all Tizen devices use localhost as a network name, there is no way around this without jailbreaking.
