Some time ago my ISP supplied me with a TG582N modem/router. I fairly quickly found a problem with it - certain entries that I added to the DNS table would change so that the name I had defined was pointing at the wrong IP address. After some experimenting I think I worked out what was happening and I consider it a bug.
After some discussion with my ISP they basically said this behaviour was by design, and that the TG582N was not designed for a network like mine(?!?) and that this problem was beyond the scope of their technical support and they could not comment further. Very unhelpful.
I found a workaround which worked for quite a while but last week the router rebooted for some reason and the DNS table started to go wrong again, so I decided to look at the problem again.
Looking through the CLI guide (the only source of detailed information I've been able to find on the device) I became curious about the "hostmgr" command group when I saw the data it was collecting.
Long story short... I disabled hostmgr and my problem with the DNS entries going wrong seems to have gone away, but I don't know what the consequence of disabling this function is.
Does anyone know what hostmgr is or does or in particular what impact disabling it will have? Better still does anyone know a source of information describing the function and intention of the numerous commands the TG582N supports rather than just the syntax of the commands with little or no indication of what any of them actually do?
