Port Fwding to Named Devices on Network doesn't work!

I have two Wifi Security cameras on my Home Network, to which I have chosen to allocate fixed IP addresses in the IP address range below the Home Hub 3's default DHCP range. When I look at the Devices list, I can see each of them them shown as connected, and called "unknown-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ", which are their MAC addresses.

 

If I rename them to sensible names, and then allocate the "Game or Application" Port Forwarding settings to them by my given NAMES, there is no through connection!

 

When I allocate the Application to their IP ADDRESSES instead, they ARE accessible. Shouldn't it work equally well using their alias names? Is this an HH3 bug?
