I've been unable to get my router (Linksys WRT110) to take a static DNS. No matter what I enter, after a reboot the status page always shows the ISP's dynamic DNS address. From what I can gather this is a problem with this brand of router; if IP is dynamic, then so is DNS. So I thought I'd try a new router. However, before I do I want to clarify some things:
1) The OpenDNS Updater gives me a message saying my HTTP IP address and my DNS IP address is different and this is a problem. However, even if I do set a static DNS, this will still be the case as my ISP gives the router one IP address and I'll still be setting the DNS address differently.
2) The OpenDNS Updater is showing my IP address as something completely different than my router is showing (router: 22.214.171.124, Updater: 126.96.36.199) What's up with that?
Thanks for any help.
