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:
Unable to resolve target system name 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:

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.
