You may find this guide available at setuprouter.com useful for configuring your device to OpenDNS (220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168): http://setuprouter.com/router/alcatel-lucent/i-240w-q/dns.htm.
This is not working, it asks domain name.
"it asks domain name."
Interesting. Post a screen shot of it.
note : it's the same if leave it blank
note : i put the ip in the name and ip place for test , but it dosen't seem to work
Why don't you enter the related domain names?
resolver1.opendns.com 22.214.171.124 resolver2.opendns.com 126.96.36.199 resolver3.opendns.com 188.8.131.52 resolver4.opendns.com 184.108.40.206
If it keeps the device happy..... ;-)
i did add the first two dns
but the router dosen't seem to use those two dns
Post the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic command here:
nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
i run that on the terminal on my pc , and here's the output :
nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.comServer: 127.0.1.1Address: 127.0.1.1#53Non-authoritative answer:which.opendns.com text = "I am not an OpenDNS resolver."Authoritative answers can be found from:
Why are your DNS queries routed to 127.0.1.1? What DNS server/forwarder is behind 127.0.1.1? This isn't your router...
"but the router dosen't seem to use those two dns"
Yep! It cannot.
Unless this 127.0.1.1 is a DNS proxy, you must change your computer's DNS configuration to point to your router's IP address.
...and if 127.0.1.1 is a DNS proxy, you must ensure that this sends DNS queries to the IP address of your router.
when i said "but the router dosen't seem to use those two dns"
i meant the router itself , not in my computer
this picture from router status
The picture shows that the router isn't configured to use OpenDNS. These are not OpenDNS resolver addresses, but your ISP's.
"when i said "but the router dosen't seem to use those two dns" i meant the router itself , not in my computer"
Yes, I know. But also the computer must be correctly configured to use the router's configuration. And this 127.0.1.1 suspects me that something is wrong with your computer configuration too. You may post the output of the following commands here:
i use linux , so i don't have ipconfig/all
but i used ifconfig -a :

netstat -nabov :

a picture for dns settings : [url=http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-262014-155304.php][img]http://www.zimagez.com/miniature/screenshot-262014-155304.php[/img][/url]
The last picture shows your configuration page, not what's actually used as the earlier picture does. And this indicates that you're using 84.235.x.x addresses, not 208.67.x.x resolvers. Look again into your router's manual to see what the purpose of this configuration page is.
Regarding your computer configuration, your DNS currently points to 127.0.1.1, but should normally point to 192.168.1.1 unless you run a DNS proxy (like DNSmasq) on this computer. But then this proxy must go out via 192.168.1.1. Else your computer will not be using your router's DNS settings.
And the right equivalent for above syntax of the netstat command for Linux is:
it did print alot of lines so i pasted it into website :
That's hard to read, so I uploaded a better readible version here.
It proves that you have 127.0.1.1. configured as DNS server address on this computer, but with no evidence of a DNS proxy. Not sure how this can work at all, but may be one of the reasons why it doesn't work. Try with reconfiguring this to 192.168.1.1, your router's address, to see if this gives better results.
If you don't know how to configure DNS on the computer, take a look here: https://store.opendns.com/setup/computer/ - under Unix/Linux You may need to edit your /etc/resolv.conf file for this purpose.
The real problem here is that this modem does not allow for you to change DNS servers, nor set the DHCP server to provide different DNS servers. It's a shame.
The instructions provided here are to create personalized DNS entries so that the modem can resolve locally when asked. It's like a hosts file for the modem, just that.
I can't find a way to really tell the modem to resolve DNS names to OpenDNS servers. Any news on this?
