I'm using a new Cnet CAR-854 router, and for some reason, it seems to return DNS information on port 20458, instead of 53:

dig ns1.xnet.co.nz
;; reply from unexpected source: 192.168.1.1#2048, expected 192.168.1.1#53

; <<>> DiG 9.4.1-P1 <<>> ns1.xnet.co.nz
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 13322
;; flags: qr rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0
;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;ns1.xnet.co.nz.                        IN      A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
ns1.xnet.co.nz.         10000   IN      A       58.28.4.2

;; Query time: 2 msec
;; SERVER: 192.168.1.1#53(192.168.1.1)
;; WHEN: Sat Feb 23 23:08:35 2008
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 48



As a result of this, to retrieve the IP address for a website takes around 5 seconds, unless the DNS info is already cached! This is absolutely rediculous. Yes, I can specify the DNS server myself for each machine on the network, but I shouldn't have to do that- the router should be able to handle things fine.

Does anyone have any ideas about what I should be looking for in the configuration of the router to fix this? Thanks.

Try turningoff the DNS proxy? or take the router back to the shop and ask them to show you how to do a DNS lookup. Chances are they have less idea aboout it than you and just send it back to manufacturer under warrantee.
