Hello,

I am running DD-WRT v3.0-r45192 mega on my router in repeater bridge mode with nas enabled.

Everything works so far just that i cannot seem to reach the router by it's hostname by an android phone and can only be reached by IP. The same hostname works fine in windows PC.

I set up the hostname in Setup>> Basic setup >> Router name field.
I also tried to add this "address=/Router.local/192.168.1.2" in additional dnsmasq options in services >> services but nothing changed.

What could be the issue?
Any help is appreciative..

Host names shall not contain any uppercase letters.
Are the device using your router as dns?

Thanks for replying

Yes I'm using ip of main router 192.168.1.1 as dns since my secondary router is running in repeater bridge mode. I also tried changing hostname in all small letters but it still doesn't work. The issue is only present in android devices.

Update:

Problem seems to have solved for now after switching to Repeater mode.
