Post edited because I my original post appeared to be part of a bigger issues. The questions unanswered are left below:

Every week I'm confronted with Name-N/A instead of router.asus.com or something more recognizable in my weekly Diversion stats and in uiDivStats. If I add my router to the table with static DHCP-leases I get a warning about putting it there, but are there any serious drawbacks to be expected? This should cause the Name-N/A to be replaced by router.asus.com, wouldn't it? Or are there better alternatives to achieve the same?

Last but not least: I would like my ASUS DDNS address to be recognized on the local network as well, so I don't have to make separate SSH-profiles in my client apps. I assume this means dnsmasq needs to be aware that this alias needs to point to the local IP of of the router. How do I do that?

Your help is much appreciated.

Best regards,
Marco

Anyone that can point me in the right direction(s)? I assume the 'issues' are solvable in a similar manner, or am I thinking to easy?

Thanks in advance.

You can add a host-record line to /jffs/configs/dnsmasq.conf.add:
Code:
host-record=myddns.mydomain.com,192.168.50.1,3600
The 3600 means to let it be cached by clients for up to an hour. You can change or omit it.

Thanks for your reply.

Can I do so for both router.asus.com as well as myddnssdomain.asuscomm.com? How can I make sure Diversion uses router.asus.com for its stats instead of Name N/A or the Asus DDNS address?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
Marco

The stats names are for connected devices like „Wife Android“, „Unruly kid iPad“ and not the router itself. router.asus.com is the router name and would never appear in the stats as its own device.
