"Might be name resolv?

/sbin/route -n

will not try to lookup your ip's.

If this makes a difference, there might be a problem with how dns is setup,
in your example it will try resolv 192.168.5.1 into a name using the dns server that is configured. If this dns server is your ISP's dns server it will ofc fail to find name for a computer on the local network."
