Is anyone aware of TWC (TimeWarner Cable, now Spectrum) intercepting our DNS lookups and resolving them from their own server caches instead of let us proceed to OpendDNS or other DNS service?
My OpenDNS content filtering has broken because of this. If you are a TWC/Spectrum customer then do this simple test www.DNSLeakTest.com
It would tell you which DNS servers are being accessed. In my case they were not the OpenDNS server I had setup in my router configuration. It fixes it shortly when I reboot my modem or when I update the DNS info in the router. This fix stays for a day or two and then slides back to the TWC servers.
What are you doing to avoid this problem other than using a network VPN?
