What OS, and how is your networking configured. (if its set up as DCHP, the following should all be set up automatically).

To connect to myhs, the PC needs to be able to (1) translate the name myhs.homeseer.com to an IP address, and (2) needs to know the IP address of the first hop that it can connect to the internet. (1) is called name service; (2) is the default gateway.

To test (1), enter command (Windows or Linux)
nslookup myhs.homeseer.com

Windows response:
Code:
nslookup myhs.homeseer.com
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  192.168.1.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    myhs2.homeseer.com
Address:  54.147.245.0
Aliases:  myhs.homeseer.com
          myhs.trafficmanager.net
Linux response:
Code:
Server:         192.168.1.1
Address:        192.168.1.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
myhs.homeseer.com       canonical name = myhs.trafficmanager.net.
myhs.trafficmanager.net canonical name = myhs2.homeseer.com.
Name:   myhs2.homeseer.com
Address: 54.147.245.0
Both show that the myhs IP address is 54.147.245.0

To test (2), on Windows: route print -4
Code:
IPv4 Route Table
===========================================================================
Active Routes:
Network Destination        Netmask          Gateway       Interface  Metric
          0.0.0.0          0.0.0.0      192.168.1.1    192.168.1.124     25
Linux: route
Kernel IP routing table
Code:
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
default         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    202    0        0 eth0
In both cases, shows that the gateway is 192.168.1.1 which is LAN address of my router.
