Intermittent website access problem

I have a pc setup as a web-server behind a zyxel router. I have port 80 forwarded and all works well - most of the time.
Occasionally, instead of the default web-page, users are presented with the router login page - sometimes after being 'kicked-out' of the web-page they were on (after clicking a link etc.).

For reference, I previously had an issue with users not being able to use the public ip address to access the site when on the local lan so I added 2 entries to the hosts file, same name but with local ip first, then public ip second. This has been working fine for 2 years(ish).

It's defintely only happened since the zyxel was installed to replace old BT router but it seems to be happening more frequently. Users generally re-try a few times and the correct web-page appears but it's very inconvenient as you can imagine.

Before I post any specific details, any ideas would be most appreciated.

my first thought is that you are not the first to post about intermittent issues with this brand. If there isn't a firmware update i'd get another router.

Is there a possibilitly to assign the Zyxel router interface another port than 80? And as aarontomosky said, check for bugs an most recent software of the router.

After much 'diagnosing', decided to replace zyxel router with netgear and all been fine for weeks now. First and last zyxel.
Thanks
