I have 7 devices on my MS home network; 4 computers, an Audiotron, a BroadVoice VOIP adapter, and a hacked series 1 Tivo, all connected via a Linksys wrt54g router.
The Audiotron and Tivo have web interfaces where I need to type the IP address, and I connect to many of the PC’s remotely where I also need to know the IP address.
My home network uses DHCP so the IP addresses don’t stay constant, so I’m always having to check the router to see the current IP address assignments before I can connect to a device.
Ideally I’d be able to set-up some aliases for each device so that I could just type http://audiotron into my browser instead of an IP address. There’s seems to be lots of information on how to do this using Linux and IIS, but is there anything simple and straightforward? Perhaps using functionality in my router?
Thanks in advance.
