I have a weird DNS problem…
Minimum configuration to reproduce the problem:
Netgear WNR3500L with Firmware v1.28.9054 MIPSR2-beta K26 USB vpn3.6
One Win7 desktop (direct cable to WNR3500)
One Win7 laptop (802.11g to WNR3500)
One Seagate Dockstar running Debian Squeeze (direct cable to WNR3500)
The WNR3500 is configured as Master Browser and WINS server. Everything works as long as I don't put anything at the Static DNS fields. If I have OpenDNS's addresses there, my laptop can not access the Dockstar by name (//doclstar/ does not work but //192.168.1.100 works)
Desktop has no problem accessing dockstar either way.
As soon as I deleted the entries at Static DNS, laptop will again be able to access the DockStar by name.
Is there other parameters I need to set if I want to use DNS other than the default?
UPDATE: If I uncheck "Use internal DNS" under Advanced: DHCP/DNS, the problem goes away.
