I have a couple of Raspberry PIs that I used to be able to access via a web browser or ssh using the hostname of the raspberry pi. I recently got a new Nighhawk R7000 router and I have it all setup and working properly, but for some reason I cant get to my PIs via hostname anymore. I CAN access them by IP address, but thats not nearly as convenient.

Any ideas what I need to change to make this work again?

Thanks, Amir

  • You need a DNS server. Your old router provided that for you and your new is not doing it. – Brick Jun 19 at 14:34

  • Thanks for the support. What I mean that the wpa_supplicant.conf file is not booting to be able to activate wifi. – Amir Garmabaki Jun 20 at 16:36
  • That seems like a completely different question. I cannot see how that relates at all to what you wrote in the question. Maybe edit the original question rather than dropping that line in a comment? – Brick Jun 20 at 17:34
  • It cannot be that wpa_supplicant isn't able to activate wifi. Then it wouldn't be possible to ping the device by ip address. – Ingo Jun 20 at 18:45
