NetSystem.Start (see Aos.NetSystem.Mod) tries the following in order 
until one succeeds:

1. It checks the NetSystem.LocalName setting in Oberon.Text
2. Does a reverse DNS lookup using the configured IP address
3. Sets it to "x.oberon.ethz.ch".

This is something different, the domain name of the computer.

See above.

Not sure what you mean here, but the above setting is not too important. 
  Everything should work with the default.
