Is there anyway to associate a name to an IP in the RV220W? I am coming from a WRVS4400N v2. Folks are complaining that they can't connect, for example via Real VNC, via the PC name any longer. They have to use the IP address. In the past I put the names of the PCs in the WRVS4400N when I reserved IPs via MAC addresses (some call this assigning static IPs). There isn't any place in the RV220W to put the name. Even when I look at the DHCP list a lot of them show up as "unknown". I am sure this is a NETBIOS thing but I'd rather fix this in the router as I have always done in the past.
Thank you for posting. Are you able to reach the devices that do show up in the DHCP list by name? There is a known issue with the DHCP leased clients table not showing all devices according to the Release Notes for 220.127.116.11:
The DHCP Client Table does not show all clients. (CSCtq44404)
It's weird, Real VNC can't resolve the name, but the OS can. For example, I can ping the computer name or type //[computer name] in the run... window and it will bring up all the computer shares.
I can use the HOSTS/LMHOSTS file as jasbryan suggested but then I have to maintain that file on each server/workstation.
At this point it seems it would be an enhancement request to add the name-to-IP resolution functionality in this router as is in the WRVS4400N v2 router. I thought I was just simply over looking the screen.
