Setup: DDWrt V23SP1 WRT54GS V3 being used as main router/AP LAN consisting of several mixed clients (W2k, XP, VOIP adapters) plus two WDS bridges supplying some further clients. DDWrt configuration: JFFS2 DNSMasq with leases on JFFS2 A subset of clients defined with static DHCP via DDWrt UI Status: All basic operations viz. internet connectivity, bridging, wireless and security work correctly. I've telnet'ed to the router, and everything looks good there as well - jffs filesystem, mounts etc. etc. Problem1: The DHCP client table in the GUI is always empty, even after I renew the DHCP lease on the various clients. The same happened to me with V23 as well. Problem2: There are a number of non-Windows clients on my LAN (VOIP adapter, print server). I'm unable to ping any of them by name, even though they are visible via nslookup. However, I'm able to ping them if I append "." after their name. e.g. My voip adapter is named ATT. "ping ATT" does not work (Unknown host ATT) "ping ATT." does work. I'm presumably able to ping all my Win2k/XP clients by name because their names are being resolved via Netbios broadcast - I confirmed this by looking at their Netbios caches (nbtstat -c). Is there any way I can remove this inconsistency viz. having to append a period on the names of some lan-clients, while not others ... ? Thanks for any help.
