Question about Linksys RVS4000 Router

1 Answer

We have a RVS4000 router, and have just moved our DNS hosting of our website to another service and everyone else can see our new site except us here in the office, we have reset the router and have cleared the cache by doing a flush ipconfig/flushdns but still not able to see new site?

Try this. At a command prompt, type 'ping' without the quotes and sub your domain for 'mydomain'. see if it resolves to an IP address or fails to connect.

If it resolves and you get 4 results, the problem is on your end. Place the IP address in your browser's address bar and nothing else. Example: will give you This bypasses the dns server of your provider and your cache. If the IP address gets your website, then clear your temp int files and cookies. Also check that your firewall will let it pass, windows and antivirus.

If the ping test fails, then the problem is that your service provider has not updated his dns server to pick up your new IP address. This will probably cure itself in 48 hours.

If you continue to have domain issues, contact me for assistance.

Block website

if your using windows then you can do it with the "host file". your computer checks the host file before it goes to a DNS server so if you alter your host file to say in your host file it will never ask the dns and find out its actually and basicly blocks the web site... its really sneaky and impossible for anyone short of a genius to undo.

How i can host my local website on world wide web through a static ip address

There are a slew of free DNS services out there. Here are just a few:
They have instructions on how to use it.
Remember when using a typical United States home Internet Service Provider that your upload speeds are very slow compared to the down speed. That's why most people will just go to a Domain Name and Web Hosting company such as:
You can let them host your website for a small fee each month if your site will eventually have a lot of traffic.

In my system some of the sites are not open

Dear i have send some information for solve your problem.
i hope you have satisfied my help.

Fix 1: Check your Windows HOSTS file - Make sure there’s no entry in the hosts file that maps the website’s address to localhost or an incorrect IP address like – it is a possibility if you have imported some third-party hosts file.
cmd /k notepad c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Fix 2: Find Faults in the Pipeline – Paypal website may be up and running but it is possible that the real problem lies with a router that is between you and the computer hosting the Paypal website. Do a traceroute and check for messages like “Request Timed Out” – they will help you find the location of the breakdown.
Type the following command in the Run Window:
cmd /k tracert – remember to replace Paypal with address of the website that is unreachable.
Fix 3: Clear DNS Cache – The DNS cache keeps a record of sites that you have recently visited on your computer. If that gets corrupted, you may have issues opening sites that were previously accessible without problems.
Type cmd /k ipconfig /displaydns in the Run window to see the cache entries. If that unreachable website is listed in the cache, type cmd /k ipconfig /flushdns to clear the cache.
Fix 4: Website May Be Blocked – The chances are rare but it is possible that access to some particular website may be have been restricted by the Office firewall. To test this, send an email to with the problematic website URL in the subject field. If the website is up, you will get a text copy of the web page in an email message.
Fix 5: Suspend the Anti-Virus and Firewall – If you are running an external software firewall or anti-virus program (like Norton, ZoneAlarm, etc), exit and restart the web browser. Is the problem solved now ?
When nothing works, open and reboot the modem. If that fails, restart your computer and as a final step, call your ISP support.

I would like initially to be able to remotely access my HP Home Server attached to my Belkin N1. In the future I might want to host a website and remotely access that site. ???

You need EITHER a static legal IP address, purchased and rented from your ISP OR use a dynamic DNS service to register your system once connected to the internet.
Look up dynamic dns on google.
You also need to be able to set up the belkin to allow requests from outside to be passed to your computer, but remember the hackers! password protect it, restrict the ports in use.

HI cyrcle,
You may redirect your name servers to a new host by changing the program code in your already existing server. you could do that only after renting a new server. That is called forward web addressing. provides you all those type of services at mean costs.

This could be possible when you try to surf the website that has been unavailable. There could be mistyped URL too. Make sure to type the exact website in the internet browser. Website might have been down due to problems or not paid to hosting service and was removed or stopped.

See if you can surf by ip address. Go here:

Then try to get to the site.....if so, you have a dns problem. Check the dns servers that are listed in the router. If it is set to static, change to auto obtain dns servers. You may also be able to add another dns server which may fix the issue. Try one of these:

Router not blocking specified site.

There are a couple ways you can do this.
  1. Check the obvious and make sure that if you are blocking by DNS name that you have included wild cards to handle any virtual hosts running on that domain and that you are blocking all ports that could potentially generate the content, not just port 80.
  2. Make sure that you do not have spy ware locally on the LAN PC's that is connecting you to the site or broadcasting content. If you are initiating contact with the server from internal PC's then your inbound policies won't matter.
  3. If all else fails and you can trace the site to an IP, you can always block the IP on your router directly for all ports, set the etc/hosts file on each machine in your organization to redirect that IP to localhost, or set your DNS server to redirect that name/ip to a fake IP internally.

Hurricane h5200 modem/router

Hello jmazaredo,

Does your DNS server have your server fqdn in its tables, and does your PC have the address of your DNS server in its lookup table?

One test you can do is to use the hosts file to put the fqdn into and assign it an address this would let you know the the PCs can use host tables to do the translation then this becomes a DNS issue as opposed to a lookup issue and you cut your troubleshooting in half.

In other words edit your hosts tables (hosts file) with the entry (Example 1):


This as stated will determine if you have a DNS issue or a lookup issue, because the DNS system will use host tables first and the do a DNS lookup.

Once this is done if it works then try this setup:

1) in your router set the DNS to capture the DNS of your ISP (normally the setting will tell the router to use the DNS given to it by the DHCP protocol.

2) turn on DHCP on the LAN side of the connection in the router and set the controls for proxy DNS service (using the router as the local DNS server also called caching DNS server), However set the router up to allow static IPAddreses and if possible to recognize the domain name of the local LAN.

3) set your servers up with static IP addresses and in their host tables set the fqdn up as stated above in Example 1

4) in your PC set the DNS to be the IP Address of your LAN side of your router i.e. and if needed set the host tables of all PCs to the server addresses, fqdn, and aliases this way if DNS fails the system will at least have the host tables to use.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,
