I just started using Comcast Cable Modem service about 2 weeks ago and eventhough I love the fast speed, I am having some problems. When I surf to some websites they don't load, instead they give me the error:
The page cannot be displayed
This is not the only problem; when I attempt to connect to my favorite BattleField 1942 (Desert Command) server fez.cracksmokingmonkeys.net the game constantly fails to connect. But, if I use the ip to get to the game server without issue. I am having this same behavior with a program called TeamSpeak2 (Voice over IP program) when using the server name it fails to connect, but, if I use the IP it connects every time.
The hardware being used is as follows:
-Cable Modem=RCA DCM315
-Router/Firewall=Dlink DI-604 (LAN side of the cable modem)
-3 Computers on the Network all connect via the Router/Firewall.
-The OS's on the computers 2 - WindowsXP Pro and 1 - Linux(Lycoris distro).
The entire setup worked fine when I was using DSL; the Firewall was configured properly, the 3 computer surfed the net, I played my games and used my VOIP without issue. But, now; enter the cable modem and I have nothing but, weird inconsistant connection problems.
Any help you could give would be great, Thanks.
P.S. I don't mean to be rude, but, I don't need a bunch of ppl saying "I heard you can't use a firewall inside a Cable modem". I don't mind the comment but, I need answers not awknowledgement that this is a problem, I know that already.
It appears to me that Comcast's DNS servers are not resolving the sites I want to get to.
