DNS trouble

Reported by: Sebastian Owned by: developers
Priority: response-needed Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Using backfire 10.03 on 2 different Routers (Linksys WRT54GSv1.1 and TP-Link TL-WR1043ND).

Running cable, WAN-IF works with DHCP Client.
I am using dnsmasq as DNS Cache.

I noticed 2 problems,
1st - Sometimes, an URL which is put into FF/IE Browser isn't able to resolve. After Hitting *refresh* DNS is resolved and page is shown.

2nd - Sometimes, an URL which is put into FF/IE Browser isn't able to resolve. Even *refreshing the site does not help. Only way to fix: Reboot Router.

While the browser/ping/nslookup/dig isn't able to resolve, the DNS Server (not dnsmasq) is not receiving a query.

I dicovered, everytime I got a url that is (temporary) not working, the DNS type is a CNAME.

  • Priority changed from normal to response-needed

Did you try using other DNS servers than those provided by your ISP ?

Like those from OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 & 208.67.220.220) or Google (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4)

I Have the same problem here WR941ND.
Sometimes all services that depend on DNS stops on my pc. Services using direct ip conection stil working without problem.
When this situation occours, I cannot access the Luci or ssh, so I must unplug the power and plug it again.
I very rare situations I can access Luci, so just restart the dhcp and dns mask and everything works fine again.

Is this problem still present on rc3 ?

See my last comment on bug #6899.

Try adding:

user=root
group=root

... to /etc/dnsmasq.conf and see if that makes it start working right.

Four days running with no issue.

Thanks
