    Hi all,

    I have finally solved the mystery that I just couldn't access http://www.symbian.com if I connect through the WRT54G V5.

    It is strange but unless I set the PC to use DHCP/Automatic IP+DNS or manually setting the DNS to the ISP DNS instead of, it just couldn't resolve the domain name..*scratching my head*

    Now a new problem...how do I use port forwarding using DHCP for BitTorrent? ISP changes the DNS everytime my IP has changed..

    the wrt54g v5 has less memory and therefor probably does do dns the way we would like it to.

    does the v5 have ddns setting? use dyndns.org domain name service. if your IP changes the dyndns name wont.
