# Why can not I settle equipment names on my LAN to their IP address?

I acquired a new ADSL modem/router recently (Belkin Share), and also can no more settle equipment names on my LAN to their corresponding IP addresses under OS X. My Windows equipments and also VMs have the ability to do this efficiently. If I sound the IP address straight, it does well, yet if I try to sound the equipment name I get 'can not settle. Unidentified host'. My previous modem/router (DLink DSL-G604T) did not have this trouble.

If I consider the DHCP rents on the router, the checklist consists of the equipment name, and also this paired with the reality that the Windows equipments can settle IP addresses makes me assume this might be an OS X config concern (although I'm not experienced sufficient with it yet to recognize specifically what). I attempted getting rid of and also re-adding the Ethernet link under Network setups, yet that made no distinction.

My Airport Extreme does this also. Attempt including .local throughout of the names of the equipments you're attempting to get to. This makes use of Bonjour to seek out the names as opposed to your router's DNS, which need to function if the computer system you're attempting to get to is a Mac. If it's a Windows COMPUTER (and also making use of .local does not function) attempt installing Bonjour and also seeing if that jobs.
