    I have setup a static DHCP for my computer and set the domain to

    Using another computer on the network I try to access and it times out, if I try to access it by its IP address it connects. I can ping the IP fine too and also ping the hostname fine too, but when I try to connect to it via it times out. Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

    Not sure you can use internet domain names. It works if you just use "lan"

    My router can be addressed with


    C:\>ping wrt54gs.lan
    Pinging wrt54gs.lan [] with 32 bytes of data:
    Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=64
    for example

    Edit: You say you can ping, is this by windoze name or by name lookup on the router? - and do you have a webserver ready to answer on that address (and firewalls on both set to allow)?
