Hmmm...   Something is very odd.  On the basis of what you are saying now, and 
what you said earlier, it seems that you may have a problem with name 
resolution for
this router.

Try doing this:


The using the hostname returned from that, do:

     host <insert hostname returned here>

Now, if the IP address returned doesn't match, this could be 
causing the problem.
What do you get?  Do the names and addresses match from both tries?
