This is just a stab in the dark, but is the router in transparent bridge
The modem / router models (the DSL range) from d-link are shipped with this
setting enabled. In transparent bridge mode, the device is designed to talk
to only one computer and will not pass packets across a LAN effectively.
You wouldn't normally expect this setting for a dedicated router, but it
may be a coincidence.
Give it a go anyway......
