    I don't think you should have spaces in the host names, you probably also don't want to tell the world all your MAC addresses...

    I've found this works best if you give your router name a domain such as "lan", then all your machines of the form "name.lan"

    Thanks for the two tipps. I've censored the MAC-adresses.
    And I will rename the host names.
    Nut why using "name.lan"? I've only one Router and one AP.

    Why? I followed a tip when using Hyperwrt years ago! It allows you access the router or devices without the ".lan", I guess at sometime if you didn't give a domain it defaulted to that of the router - whether it is still true I don't know!
