Hi All,

RT-AC88U, 384.19

I've configured static host entries for a few LAN devices that use SSL (effectively split DNS). This works great, except when the internet drops out. In this case all DNS queries are resolved to, including those in the hosts file. As soon as the internet is back DNS works as expected: query -> host file -> internet resolution.

I can reproduce this by disconnecting the internet port and using nslookup from a client. What is weird, ssh into the router and nslookup there works perfectly. 10.0.0.x network isn't valid or configured anywhere on my router that I know of.

Wondered if anyone had any ideas?
