Trying to use OpenWRT as a DNS server for local names. i have set my adsl router up as dhcp server and using the OpenWRT router as the primary dns server with google (126.96.36.199) as the secondary DNS server.
I have added 'router' 192.168.1.1' to the hostnames section of LuCI.
I can ping using cmd '192.168.1.1' and it replies correctly. I can browse to 'h t t p://192.168.1.1' using a web browser. I can ping using cmd 'router' and it resolves correctly. I cannot browse to 'h t t p ://router' using a web browser. I can ping using cmd 'router.lan' and it resolves correctly. I cannot browse to 'h t t p://router.lan' using a web browser.
Using windows 7, with chrome, IE, and firefox. Using Android with chrome,
The error chrome gives is Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE
NOT Error code: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED
