If I use MSIE 5.5, from an external connection, it fails with a DNS
error. If I use Netscape 4.76 from the same machine, it all works fine.

Like I said, everything worked fine before I switched to this router
from my Linux router (I had 2 web servers running, one on this port, and
one on the usual port 80.)

Note that the server name in httpd.conf is (I checked when
someone mentioned it), not keroon. I also notice in the log that
(apparently) some folks have no trouble, and others do.

All in all, it would work just fine if I uploaded to an external server
with a public IP/hostname, but my question still stands: Is it worth it
(using a newer kernel version of course)? There is over 1GB of HTML here
(that would take a while to U/L even on a cable modem :)
