    I have 2 questions.

    1) Will the device list show fixed ip's or just dhcp?

    2) Is it normal to have devices missing? I have a network printer that uses auto dhcp and it is not listed in my device table. When I type in the address manually in a web browser it takes me to the printer.

    All devices in my network are shown, including those with fixed IP.

    But only the ones that gets the IP from DHCP gets their name shown.

    same here. every device on my network shows up in the device list.

    if your printer isn't in the list, power cycle it and see if it shows up.

    I have a Linksys PSUS4 (USB print server w/4 port switch)... if the connection is not used (ie: I don't print) it is removed from the device list, once I ping or print it is shown in the device list.

    If don't look for the secondary router it is not shown in the list. (again, once a direct connection is established it magically apears.

    both of these devices use static ips

    hi all. im trying to set Wake on lan with tomato 1.15 on an onboard NIC on a p5n32e sli plus motherboard. however, when i log into tomato and go to either WoL or device list, when my computer is turned off I cannot see it attached to the router. shouldnt it be "seen" even when the computer is turned off, so that i can turn it on with a WoL packet? what am i doing wrong?
    edit: WoL is turned on in the motherboard and in Windows XP Sp2. im using outpost firewall, though i cant imagine that affects anything when pc is off.

    You can still add it to the static dhcp list to reserve the IP and I believe appear in the device list.

    If the router has been rebooted and clients not refreshed their IP then they don't appear.

    Static IPs will appear if they have communicated with the router within the last 5 mins - the web display includes anything present in the "arp table". So if you ping a device via the router it notices where it is.
