The office has a small LAN, composed by a Linksys WRT54G2 sharing a DSL connection, a hub, and several wired and wireless clients. DHCP is enabled in the Linksys.
The DHCP clients table shows the connected machines, some with host name, but I can't ping or otherwise connect to any of them using the hostname. Using the IPs works fine.
From the console I do
nslookup [connected hostname] [linksys IP]but I get
Server: [my ISP's DNS] Address: [my ISP's DNS]#53 ** server can't find [connected hostname]: NXDOMAIN
Not sure if the Linksys is handling the DNS request redirecting it to the external DNS, or if it's not responding and nslookup is using the external DNS.
In any case, this isn't working, and I don't see anything in the Linksys control panel to enable or disable this feature. This is supposed to just work, right?
