I've transitioned from a Netgear router running Netgear firmware to another router running tomatousb and the one thing I really miss is that Netgear's firmware somehow establishes a local domain on your LAN called routerlogin.net that hooks you up to the router login page. Is there a way to do that in tomatousb? Thanks for the assistance!

Change your tomato device hostname to that hostname, or any hostname you desire
So under Basic—>Identification there are options to name: Router Name, Hostname, and Domain Name. I cannot use a ".net" in the hostname because the firmware comes back and says that the "." is not legal in that name box. I've tried placing routerlogin.net in the Domain Name box but that doesn't do it.
What am I missing here?
Seriously, you really want a super long name, that includes the dot? Be creative!! Name your router "lady" and that'll be the hostname that you can type into the browser.
Lady ? I'm gonna name it Snatch. Now I can browse for some Snatch when I want to get some router. Works for me !
Pretty funny not only taking on my handle, but the responses posted… all joking aside for a moment though, I've now added the name "Tomato" to the hostname on the Basic—>Identification page, re-saved that setting, but still am not able to access the router by typing in the "tomato" name in my browser address bar….?
Again- what am I missing here?
Thanks for your sincere assistance!
There are three different identification fields. Router Name, Host Name and Domain Name. Try naming all three of them Snatch to see if it resolves.
That's not doing it…. the issue must be something related to my pc's network discovery settings, but I believe it is operating because my Windows Explorer is finding my NAS devices and other pcs on the network….?
