Netgear MR 814 v2 :: Slow connect time from local lan to local webservers using the public http://mydomain.com or the public ip address
Posted on 2003-12-01
I just bought a Netgear MR 814 v2 to replace a older linksys router, the problem is when i try to get to my domain which is hosted locally by its qualified domain name or by the pubic IP from inside my network it is horrendously slow. However if I am accessing the domain from outside of my LAN the connect time is fast. I have fooled with most all the settings on the Netgear router and am at my wits end. The older linksys router used to freeze when you used the domain or public IP, once a firmware update was performed and messing with the "MTU's" it worked like a charm. the netgear router is on the newest firmware, the only difference i notice is with the linksys it would show the gateway (192.168.0.1) as being on the network, vs the netgear that shows the pubilc IP instead. The pages load, but they are about as slow as a 56k link. All other sites and services work fine, i can browse any other site with speed, but when i access the http://mydomain.com its SLOW and will eventually load if you give it 10 minutes or so. If i ssh to mydomain.com it also lags bad letting me type about 10 chars halts for a bit then resumes and lets you type a few more chars. All my port maps are set correctly, I just cant figure out why this router dramatically slows down when i access either my public IP or http://mydomain.com or any service from the local lan to mydomain.com. Any advice on fixing the issue would be appreciated.
