Webpage cache - problem

Hi there,
I've got a standard setup for my router at home but I'm having an issues with webpage and cache. Each time I load a page small changes are shown right away, but bigger changes like DNS changes to a webpage; php updates are very slow to follow through.

When I use a proxy browser I see the changes in real time which is what I'd like to see.

I've tried removing everything on the local computer browser but that hasn't work so I think the issue is in my ROS setup.

Can anyone help me.

Thanks

If you are not using the webproxy on the router, then the router has nothing to do with it. The router will not cache any webpage content unless you are using the webproxy.

Also, "php" is not "seen" by your computer at all. Your computer only sees the html generated by php.

Regarding "dns" changes to a website... you mean changing a url to a different IP address? That is a totally different thing. The old IP could be cached by ANY dns server, and the standard is "up to 48 hours" for dns changes to propagate across the internet.
