So how would I get my Linksys Wireless Router
to see my DHCP linux box(es)?
By that I mean, when I bring up the router's config page and look at "DHCP Clients", I see all the IPs ok, but the only Hostnames I see are my Windows machines (and then only my XP boxes, which are in a Workgroup. I have a Win2000 laptop that's on a domain that doesn't show the Hostname either) This isn't a huge issue, more one of those nagging "MUST KNOW WHY" things
Oh, and is there a way to specify a range of ips in a hosts file, or does that not make any sense? I'd like to be able to see my DHCP boxes by name as well if possible... (I've got one box set up with a static IP as a web/file server, but the rest of my machines are all DHCP clients)
