Me too ;-)

In the meantime, I setup forwarding requests to "t-online.de" and "t-ipnet.de" to the address
That is kind of a global DNS resolver for all customers and is working since the 90s without address changes.

In your sip.conf, simply add

srvlookup = no

To your DTAG peer configuration.
If set globally, you may break the ability to directly call SIP addresses.

On embedded systems, I often had problems with "stuck" DNS.
But that was ages ago... The last time on my old "Horstbox" with Asterisk 1.2 and bristuff on Linux 2.4 :-/

Have you rebooted the whole WRT device or just restarted the Asterisk service to resolve your problem?
Maybe it's less an Asterisk issue but one with DNS caching on this device?

Viele Grüße aus dem Tal
