Is there a way to display Host Name and IP on Access points?

    I have a main router that serves as a WINS server with two additional access points that are wired into the main router. The main router shows the host name and ip of each and every client on the Device list page. This information is not available on the access points. All you can see in the device list is the mac address and signal quality in the case of a wireless client. Is there a script that I could run on the access points that could retrieve that information from the main router and populate those empty fields on the access points? I am running Teddy's Tomato on all units if that matters.

    If your clients have static IP addresses, which you would also have to enter on the AP, then the AP's will display what you want, I believe.

    That shows the host name but does not report the ip, however it is not practical to assign a static ip address to every client on the network.
