Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 2.0.1

The intention of this thread is to understand whether local DNS resolution is on the roadmap, and if not, to define a suggestion for such a feature and gather inputs from other users in hope to get it implemented.

 

User story:

As a user, I would like my router's DNS server to resolve the hostnames of local clients so that I can connect to them by name instead of IP.

 

Rationale:

It is hard to remember IP addresses, and we already have the possibility of remembering clients and assigning them names in Omada Controller. Having to run a separate DNS server and duplicate the name/IPs would be cumbersome and error prone. Integrating resolution of names as configured in Omada Controller in the router's DNS server would be a much smoother option.

 

Details:

Names of clients should be added to the DNS server in priority order:

1. If any client is given a name in Omada Controller, that name should be used as hostname (after potential removal/replacement of incompatible characters)

2. (Optional) The hostname a client reports during DHCP request

 

Reference:

As far as I know, this is a common feature in commercial routers. Ubiquiti also supports this, google "ubiquity dnsmasq" (link was not allowed).

 

TP-link, please reply whether this is on the roadmap or if you can consider implementing it.

Hey!

 

I advice you all to vote for this issue https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/forum/topic/542472 (which is the same as current one)

The more people vote, the higher the chance TP-Link staff notices it, the higher the chance we will actually get a Local DNS server in Omada.

As far as I know, this gateway does not act as a DNS Server, it only serves as a forwarder.

Just striving to develop myself while helping others.

  @Virgo Thanks for the information. I believe this is still a valid feature request which should be considered for implementation, even though it might mean a larger scope.

  @stian I second this request.  This has been a pretty standard feature in other systems for a long time now and the lack of it is a real inconvenience.

Please add this feature or indicate if it is in future roadmap so people can plan network buildout and potential device purchase accordingly.

Please add local DNS server for local clients. Other router does have it, why TP link not?
