Title: LAN ip address computer name will not be shown when assigned static ip address
Post by: zillah on April 07, 2019, 04:24:42 AM
Dear folk

My home network setup is LinkSys router WRT1900ACS with mobiles and desktop computers connected wireless and wired

For my desktop if an ip assigned automatically router shows the desktopís name as per the snapshot below :

If the static ip address assigned router shows asterisk as per below :

How the name can be shown when static ip assigned ?

Thanks

Router  DHCP reservation settings? Host name?

Thanks Salmon
By hostname I guess you meant this which was already assigned

I mean you go in your router DHCP Reservation settings and set up a fixed IP address and there is somewhere you type in the name you want.
