    Okay so I need to prove that its not the router playing up as even the simple http url didnt work.

    Any ideas what i would use to connect with this Draytek?

    "as even the simple http url didnt work."

    My router with an earlier firmware didn't want the protocol in front of the URL, so try without:

    updates.opendns.com/...
    updates.dnsomatic.com/...

    Later on, with newer firmware, I can also use the protocol, i.e. HTTP or HTTPS, because HTTPS is supported now.

    Generally, you may need to play with many variations.   Your best bet is to visit a forum where your router is being discussed.  There are usually the router nerds who can help.

    Yeah all networks will need different IPs so agreed will need to add the network label, however just updating an IP for any network will be a start.

    The router is quite niche, I havent found a forum yet for them (well in English). 

    Will keep plodding on with different setups. 

     

    BTW thanks for the help so far!!!
