I am marking your answer as correct. I got this working by enabling AP isolation, letting the router reconfigure itself, and then disabling AP isolation again. (Also I do have machinename.local working with the Cisco M20 as well, so now I can indeed "ssh machinename.local" on my home network.) Thanks very much.

@r.tanner.f I just checked AP Isolation. It is set to disabled. Also, do you have the router? If so, are you able to SSH from one machine to another?

Even though I have had not explicitely set up a DNS, on my older router when one does a gethostbyaddr() I have noticed that it often resolves the hostname to something like machinename.local. How does this happen? And can I not just use such names instead of the IP address? (Note: one this router newer router I am not able to look up hostname also, so this question is moot.)

I understand that routers can isolate computers, but I cant seem to find anything in the settings of my router that seems to say this. Is there a standard place one would look?
