I was a bit puzzled as to why it should be a problem a week after my connection went live and I started using this router. Anyway I decided to try setting up a static route. That allowed me to connect using the domain name but then I saw that I was connecting on my external address. So I disabled the static route and it's still working.
I've done some Googling and the WNR1000 supposedly doesn't support loopback. The questions therefore are:
b)If it doesn't then why did it take a week before it caused me a problem?
c)Did my static route fix something? For how long?
BTW:I did reasonable due diligence and my internet connection was up. TBBQM doesn't show a break either so presumably the router didn't reboot.
