I have a Netgear WNR2000v5 Router that doesn't work properly when I specify known working DNS servers such as OpenDNS. A few web accesses may work and then the router fails to work properly. Browsers on a Windows 7 computer then time out and my Android smartphone indicates DNS error.
I've tried three firmware versions and the router is rebooted after changing any settings. The DNS cache is also cleared on the Windows 7 computer. If the Windows 7 computer is configured to specify OpenDNS everything works fine as long as the router is using the default DNS servers. Does this sound like a problem with the Internet Service Provider?
