Hi,

My father in law received a new HG659b modem from Spark at his business.
He hosts his own website onsite, however, since he installed this modem he is no longer able to access the website from within the LAN.  The browser is redirected to the modem admin page.  The website is accessible from the internet.
Editing the hosts file to resolve the name to the correct LAN address on one of the machines rectified the issue.  But I don't think this is a good long term solution to edit the host file on all the machines.
Is this normal for these modems to do this?  Amy other possible solutions?

Cheers

You need a router that supports hairpin NAT. I'm guessing the old one did. You might need to instead use a router such as the Ubiquity Edge router lite. Or a Mikrotik router. As they support hairpin NAT. As I doubt any ISP supplied router would support hairpin NAT.
