I'm fairly certain this is a Windows 10 problem, not an Octoprint issue but I'm hoping there's expertise here that has seen this before. I got a new router over the weekend (ASUS RT-AC86U); All router settings were duplicated to the best of my ability from the old router. I have three previously working printers running Klipper FW wirelessly connected on the network; the SSID and PW were duplicated on the new router. All other devices on the network (wired and wireless) are working properly, however I can no longer get to any of my three printers running Octoprint from my windows PC using the 'hostname.local' method and Chrome as a browser.
I can connect from the PC with a wired ethernet connection to the printer's Pi
I can connect wirelessly with my iPhone 7 using Safari
I can connect wirelessly by typing in the IP address
I see the printer host names on the router's client list, they have different IP addresses than before
If I change the hostname and reboot everything I can connect wirelessly using hostname.local (I'm hoping to avoid changing everything to a new name)
This seems like Windows isn't being flexible to adapt the Pi hostname to the new IP address but I can't figure out how to get it to updated the mapping.
What did you already try to solve it?
Multiple reboots of everything
sudo rasp-config and made sure wifi info was correct and rebooted; changed host name temporarily
Tried DNS flush on Windows PC
Modify Windows hosts file to map hostname.local to IP address I see on router's client list
