Made sense to me. Tried it and ran the interactive troubleshooter. It fails at step 7, resolving external hostnames. At that step you ping amahi.org. It successfully pings, but it isn't the IP that the troubleshooter is expecting. It's 66.165.251.199 instead of 208.115.201.202. If I do an nslookup amahi.org on the HDA, it returns a "non-authoritative answer" 66.165.251.199.

Do apps work?

Can you ping google.com?

The IP address may have changed for amahi.org as I get the same result as you.

My HDA works just fine.

Yes, I can ping google.com, with 9% packet loss (1 of 11).

I have shell in a box and gallery2 installed and they appear as icons on the Dashboard. Clicking on either of those icons takes me to the amahi.net internet page with interactive troubleshooter. (I also have HDA troubleshooting tools, amahi synch, amahi anywhere and Crash Plan installed). I frankly don't use the apps for much, so it's not as though I feel I'm missing out, although I'd like to be able to say that my HDA is configured correctly.

Are you using the HDA for DHCP and DNS server?

If so, try changing the DNS provider to something else, then change it back and see if that helps.

BTW, I checked and the amahi.org IP address did change. The Network Troubleshooter should be updated now.
