This is most likely an /etc/hosts issue with the new name.

I believe it never gets a name because of DHCP server brokenness -- from
what you've described.

What steps lead to this dialog box?  Is the account you are logged into
allowed to perform sysadmin tasks?

I dare say, #1 is not Gnome related but basic system admin related (and
Gnome will be happy when you fix that -- not Gnome's fault), and #3 is
likely to be an issue of syadmin again, where the user trying to perform
whatever tasks are emitting the errors is not allowed to do such things.
