I have a TP-Link TL-WR941nd V2..
I write my own HTML scripts although not educated in this, needless to say I have programmed in other languages, so I have been able to muddle my way through..
I have Cable internet and my IP changes very seldom, but I do have a domain name, which I pay for on DYNDNS.com..
I create my own scripts for the cameras around my home, so I may view them locally or via Internet..
All the scripts I've written, connect to my domain name ????.homeip.net, to get the camera streams. I also use VNC to access computers via Internet...
I recently discovered DD-WRT and found that my router could be changed to this firmware..
Wow, I have been in and around computers since 1982 having started with building my own Apple ][+ clone.. I thought I understood a fair amount about the Internet and networks, having installed and setup medium sized companies... But some of the settings in DD-WRT are well above what I do understand...
My problem is: before DD-WRT all my accessing of ????.homeip.net in scripts or in a browser were no problems from LAN or WAN, since installing DD-WRT my scripts using ????.homeip.net no longer work from the LAN, only the WAN, if I edit or access the LAN IP's directly everything works fine... I really don't want to duplicate everything, 1 for LAN and 1 for WAN...
If I watch while accessing ????.homeip.net, I can sometimes see my WAN IP clearly and yet the page nevers comes up. I assume this is some kind of a DNS problem, But I do not know how to fix it.
Is there a setting in DD-WRT, DYNDNS.com or just some damn thing I can do to make this work again ??
I feel so stupid, because I don't even know what to call this problem.
My house has 5 adults, of which 3 are our children that just won't move out:)), so we have 12 computers (mix PC and MAC) and wifi cell phones and ipods, etc, so just editing the HOSTS file in Windows is not an option..
If I have left out any pertinent information, please let me know.
I hope you can help, Thank you, clipbrd
