I have just moved to an area where broadband connections are slow. Because I work from home I was encouraged to use the new 4G network. I installed the new modem (Huawei B593) and soon had it working. Then I discovered that there is no option of changing the DNS, I tried using the OpenDNS updater but was told that my IP was unavailable. I checked with the OpenDNS site and and the GRC Shields UP site and both gave me a IP address beginning 85.76.xxx.xx. So if both of them can see this why cannot the OpenDNS Updater?
In an attempt to be covered by OpenDNS I installed my Apple Airport Extreme, and entered all the details into it but even that does not direct me to the OpenDNS service. I changed the AAE to being the DHCP instead of the modem but even that does nothing, instead it causes chaos as nothing talks to anything and the whole network has to be reset.. So I am at a loss here to understand what I can do. If anyone has any bright ideas as to how I can solve this problem I would be very grateful.
