I'll be damned. I have DNS relay on.

Well, good that you got it solved.

I recall a couple of years ago D-Link telling me to keep it turned on.
But thanks to that info, I've now turned it off. Doesn't really seem like a particularly worthwhile feature. At least, not on fast links.

thanks

I have this setting turned on also. Here is the best explanation I can find and now it makes sense.

Depending on the usage of DNS relay, you can either enter the IP of the router (DNS relay on) or you have to enter an IP address of an external DNS server (you'll find 2 valid addresses in the WAN status section of the router's menu).

Not sure either. The open dns guy with support I talked to stated it should always be off for opendns to work properly and that some dlink routers have issues with it being turned on.

All I know is as soon as I made the change, presto it was fixed. And my firmware is up to date.

Thanks for sharing this information because I never really thought about that setting until now.

Added info on why this setting has the effect it does.
