    I've got around this issue in the past by switching to the smartdns provider alternate DNS port, at least the one I use had it. Instead of pointing DNS to port 53 you have to modify the iptables to the alternate port your provider may (or may not) have. iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -p...
