I've installed OpenWrt on a Raspberry Pi. It gets it's IP adress from pfSense gateway via DHCP and I can ping the outside world by IP address but hostname resolution doesn't work. How do I enable this?
Configure the pfSense to hand out a working DNS server.
My pfSense box has been set up correctly for four years. I was missing something on the RPi but somehow have it working now.

I've just reinstalled OpenWrt on a RPi and after it booted up, I changed /etc/config/network so that it used DHCP rather than having a static IP address. Then after running /etc.init.d/network reload the IP address was updated but hostname resolution only started to work after a reboot. Is this to be expected?
Did you also reload the dnsmasq service?
You should also disable the dhcp server on lan with
option ignore 1 in
/etc/config/dhcp on interface lan.
