Hi

So I've Googled and didn't find my specific issue. Since purchasing the router(Asus RT-N13U) a month ago I've found it finicky with inconsistent Internet connections but tolerable.

My big issue is that I design websites and I have a site I'm developing www.my-fake-name-site.com. This router cannot access that site, I keep getting server not found in my browsers.
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium with an AMD Phenom X4-965 cpu and Asus M4A77D motherboard.

Being close to 60 my brain cells seem to be atrophying at a logarithmic rate :)
However here is my troubleshooting protocol.


I tried pinging the site but get "Ping request could not find host my-fake-name-site.com".
Using trace route produced some odd results. It won't trace the primary domain name but will trace to a subdomain:

"C:\Users\Me>tracert my-fake-name-site.com
Unable to resolve target system name my-fake-name-site.com.
______________________________________________________________

C:\Users\Me>tracert subdomain-of-my-fake-name-site.com

Tracing route to subdomain-of-my-fake-name-site.com [00.111.111.00]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 1 ms <1 ms 1 ms my.router [192.168.1.1]
2 7 ms 9 ms 7 ms 10.75.0.1
3 11 ms 15 ms 14 ms d226-2-209.home.cgocable.net [24.226.2.209]
4 9 ms 14 ms 10 ms 109-0-226-24.cgocable.net [24.226.0.109]
5 12 ms 11 ms 9 ms 64.34.137.61
6 10 ms 11 ms 9 ms 10ge.xe-2-0-0.tor-151f-cor-1.peer1.net [216.187.114.145]

11 55 ms 57 ms 52 ms po5.dar01.sr01.dal01.networklayer.com [173.192.18.191]
12 57 ms 55 ms 66 ms po1.fcr02.sr04.dal01.networklayer.com [66.228.118.178]
13 64 ms 53 ms 56 ms subdomain-of-my-fake-name-site [00.111.111.00]

Trace complete."
And even weirder although it won't trace in Command Prompt but I can trace it in Network-Tools.com????
However I can access the subdomain site?????????????????????

If I give my browser the IP address of domain I can access the Apache intro page but no access if I use the domain name.
I don't think this router likes my primary domain name!!!!!

To eliminate OS issues I tried getting to the site using the OS independant SplashTop browser in Asus's ExpressGate:
1. With the RT-N13U connected can't connect to www.my-fake-name-site.com.
2. With my LinkSys WRT54GL www.my-fake-name-site.com connects fine.
3. With broadband modem cable to computer www.my-fake-name-site.com connects fine.

The same results above happen when I access them in Windows 7.

Installed 1.02 firmware, made sure that DHCP is enabled - also checked routers URL filters - hosts file is in original state - but still can't access www.my-fake-name-site.com.
I'm stumped!
Any ideas?
Thanks

Well I changed my DNS servers from auto to manual and entered my ISP providers DNS server addresses. It worked for

a couple of hours and now I am back not being able to connect to the site.
I DON'T understand what kind of firmware programming would hang itself on a domain name!

A shot in the dark ...

Have you tried Google's public DNS servers?

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

Yay! I can see the site again. I can see down the road this thing is going to be renamed the Googlenet :)

Anyway, thanks for the shot obviously it worked :)

So finding it hard to believe that my ISP providers DNS servers wouldn't have my domain name in it, I added their DNS server addresses and made them active. Relaunched the browser, downloaded the pic and guess what - I can see my domain again.
When it craps out again I'll move the Google addresses to the top.

Thanks again.
