2 General Feature Requests

 

This past weekend I had 20 log file enteries that I had never seen before. I thought maybe my router had been hacked via one the connected devices as remote management was turned off. I have a smart home with 25+ devices. When I looked at the DHCP list there were a bunch that had no client name. So I spent a bunch of time trying to connect the MAC address to the acutal device. I then edited the client name on the router and wanted to create a spreadsheet with that data. The only way I could do that was to save the page to a pdf file and then copy & paste it inyo an Excel sheet, and then spit the text rows into columns. Also to get the lsit of ALL of the Reserved IP address I had to do it a couple of more times because your page only shows 8 entries at a time and i have 15, none of which are always connected.

 

So I have two feature requests: 

 

1,The ability to either export the Address Reservation and Client lists from the DHCP servier page to a text file or print it as a single list. 

 

2. Accept and save new Client Names so that they are not lost when the DHCP lease is renewed.

 

I am allowed to edit the Client name (Basic Tab/client list), but it is lost when the DHCP lease is renewed. For example, I have 5 tp-link smart plugs and switches. i edit the name on the router to match the name in the KASA app, but when I reboot the router it just pulls in HS105, instead of Living Room Light. 

 

Can you create a litle database that connects MAC addresses to the last Device name created on the router? Whenever, the DHCP is activated it compares the MAC address against the database and pulls the device name in from the database. Otherwise, eliminate the ability to edit the client name and save us rookies some time and frustration.

 

Thanks for your time.
