Can't connect to certain websites.

Okay so I have a router at college. An Asus RT-N16. I have DD-WRT on it. I used to own a wrt54gl until it crapped out on me. So I just bought this.

The problem is: Everything works fine, but I cannot access my colleges website. Like the .edu address. None of it. When I directly connect to the wall I am fine, with the router I cannot go to our .edu site. It just gives a generic error saying it cannot reach the website/address.

I have tried everything. Static IP that is linked to my computer and allowed on the network. DHCP. I have done MAC cloning. I have no idea what to do. It used to work on the wrt54gl.

Any ideas?

  1. Are you overriding the DNS server settings in the router setup? When you are inside a network you cannot use the external IP addresses to access local servers.
  2. What does that mean? "Overriding the DNS server settings"? I have done nothing other than the initial set up. What can I do to resolve this?
  3. These are my main setup settings:
  4. That is unusual to use static WAN addresses. Make sure those DNS settings are correct.
  5. What else should I use?

    I simply plugged in directly to the wall, and then ipconfig /all'd and wrote down all my laptops ip settings and whatnot and then plugged them into my router settings. Is that not what I should have done? Should I just use DHCP? I don't think it works if I do that. Other routers my friends have work fine. And me, being a CS major can't figure this crap out.
  6. Try again just using DHCP.
  7. Nope. Didn't work :(
  8. No one? Damn it.
  9. Going by all the details you provided there is no reason it should not work.
