      Question 2504n LAN Routing / DNS

      Hi, I have a wordpress server on my internal network and need to be able to access it from LAN connected machines. I have setup wordpress so it is pointing to it's WAN DNS name which means that whenever I try to connect to the full DNS name on an internal machine, I get pushed through to the 2504n router's web interface!!I have modified my hosts file to get around this problem on Windows / Linux machines but have a couple of iOS and Android devices which are not rooted / jailbroken so can't get them to work.Is there anywhere on the 2504n where I can modify DNS entries so I can point my WAN DNS name to an internal IP?Thanks.

      If your Wordpress server is on a linux machine, the easiest option is probably to switch off the dhcp on your router and get your server to do dhcp / dns
