problem from local machine

problem from local machine

I posted the same problem before but no luck i'm just gonna reword ..

Greeting all,
  I have a weired problem,  here is the scenario:
- i have a router with firewall enabled, Port 80 is open.
- I'm hosting 2 web sites from a dsl connection (i have a static ip)  which works perfect if you try to access it from any where (global) , but when i try to access the web from any local computer, the page doesn't come on(page can't be displayed) . Even if i type the ip address in the browswer,   If i ping the web, it replies with the correct ip.
- Also same problem occures when i'm checking or sending my email from a local machine, (using my global ip address or using my name server (eg mail.mydomain.com)

- I'm using an externel DNS server

Here is another thing i  changed the router (from compaq Ipaq to Dlink 704) and the Dlink router works no problem, but using the compaq router, give me the above problem.  

I doupt it is a DNS problem , there must be something about the router, but i really give up, and don't know how i could access the web locally,

Any help or resources will be greatly appreciated,

Thanks for any input or ideas,

RE: problem from local machine

Maximos....hope Manarth figured out the problem.  I am having a problem with the Ipaq router as well, this is a Ipaq CP-2e model.  You are one of the few that I know have the Ipaq so you might know the answer. I'm trying to limit certain machines from accessing the internet while allowing others.  I want to do this through the IP tables.  I can't find anything in the router interface that allows me to do this...is there a section of the setup where I can find this and set this up?

......thanks a lot
