Unable to access web-based configuration using host name (WAP4410N)
I recently bought and installed a WAP4410N access point (using PoE) and it's running stable. I was able to access the web-based configuration by using the IP address of the AP (something like 192.168.0.184, coming from the DHCP of my router).
However, I'm unable to access the web-based configuration using the host name of the device (mentioned next to the device name in the basic setup section of the web-based configuration). I changed the host name several times, but I can't connect to the device using the host name. Accessing the device by its IP address works, but I have to check the logging of my router to find out which IP address I have to use. Is there a way to access the device using the host name?
Any help is greatly appreciated,
(I think my WAP4410N has firmware version 126.96.36.199 installed)

Thanks for your reply, riroe.
I don't have a DNS server running in my LAN. What's puzzling me is that all other devices (workstation, laptop, NAS, etc...) in my LAN are accessible through their host names and this without running any kind of DNS service. Is this a limitation of the WAP4410N access point?
