Netgear MR 814 v2 :: Slow connect time from local lan to local webservers using the public http://mydomain.com or the public ip address

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.

Thank You,
-Ed

Have you visited www.netgear.com and downloaded the latest firmware upgrade for the router?  It might be a bug that is already fixed.  You just downlload the appropriate .bin file and upload it to the router.

The router as stated is on the newest version of the firmware.

Have you looked in the LAN ip setup section of the router?  Something is wrong here I think.  The LAN side should be 192.168.0.1 and the WAN side should be whatever the public IP is.

Alternatively, have you tried putting hosts files on the PCs that point to the address of your domain?

Host file didnt work for any machine, the lan side is 192.168.0.1 and the WAN side is the public IP.

You say you have a public IP machine inside your network.  I think you need to set up one of the ports on the router as a dmz port,  or just set up a DMZ .  The dmz should have the locally hosted public IP as a separate network (in effect).  So you now have 3 interfaces for the router - LAN, WAN & DMZ
Hope this helps

I had this problem.
Try checking the 'Disable SPI Firewall' in the netgear admin (Advanced->WAN Setup)
this solved my problem.
    now just to make netgear fix this error... or changing router
