I'm new to DD-WRT; just bought and set up a Buffalo WZR 1750DHPD. I have a static IP with CenturyLink and a domain name tied to that address. I have set up a Static Lease to my web server with port forwarding. When I type in the IP, as in http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, it does open the top index page on the server. But when I use my domain name, the DD-WRT web interface show up. Can someone tell me what I'm missing in the router setup?

Thanks.

1. You have to be located on the internet i.e outside of your network to use the domain name.

2. Port 80 is also used for the admin pages.
You can try to turn off admin from the wan.
