I've got a dd-wrt Linksys WRT3200ACS router working in 'AP' mode. My ISP supply a modem which runs a DHCP server. The modem is connected to the LAN port on my router and then the rest of the wired LAN is connected on the other ports. The router pumps out wifi. All other devices (wireless and wired) on my network work online perfectly.
From the router itself, in the shell, I can't seem to resolve DNSes. DNSMasq is disabled and Local DNS setting is 0.0.0.0. I can ping IP addresses on the internet directly, so it definitely has a working connection.
I've tried updating the local DNS setting in the dd-wrt frontend to both that of the ISPs modem (this is what all other devices get from DHCP) and also to 188.8.131.52 for Google's. Neither of these work.

Any ideas? Many thanks.
