I have my IP address mapped to a hostname "example.com" where I have a simple Welcome webpage. The webpage is written in PHP. After I successfully connect to the Pi Access Point I attempt to go to the hostname but it fails majority of the time. When I try the static IP it connects to the webpage right away. I have the Pi inside a plastic enclosure that is about 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) thick. What settings or possible issues could cause the hostname connection/IP translation to fail (or be severely delayed)?
