We've bought a RV180 for our new office which I haven't actually switched on yet, but I'm wondering if it's possible to get it to associate hostnames with IPs that it has assigned via DHCP, so that they will resolve? I can't see any mention of it in the manual (our old Netgear has this feature, and it's very useful).
The RV180 does not have this ability, however the RV320/325 does. The feature is called DNS Local Database (on our devices anyway).
Just to double check, you are wanting to assign IPs to hostnames, so that if someone on the LAN uses the hostname it will resolve to that IP correct? If so that would be DNS Local Database. If you are talking about something else let me know and I will answer back.
You do have other options to make this work, for example a local DNS server, or adding those hostnames and IPs to the client PCs host file.
Hope that helps, and thank you for choosing Cisco,
