just to add, I do not have java.....JRE installed on my system to run any of the above tests

so I cheated and booted Knoppix which does have a JRE.

(sob) my router's results were not so good

FYI, the 'dig' command referenced in the first link near the bottom of your source is available in the bind.tcz extension.
