  • 851w DNS Relay?

    I just replaced my home router with a Cisco 851w and I was wondering if there was a way to make it act as a DNS relay so my home PCs can resolve each other.

    Thanks!

    You can do the following on the router:


    ip host PC1 192.168.1.1
    ip host PC2 192.168.1.2

    This will let you ping the pc's from the router via ip address or hostname.

      Thanks, but I'm not worried about being able to ping the PCs from the router, I want the PCs to be able to resolve each other by name. My old router would give out itself as the DNS server to its DHCP clients, but my Cisco with my current config is giving out the ISPs DNS servers to DHCP clients. My network is mixed between windows and OS X, so I believe I need DNS for everything to resolve everything else by name. I would rather not configure a PC as a DNS server because I don't want more systems that need to be always on.

      Thanks for your advice
