Howdy, as the Description says, I have an Actiontec GT704WG, using Verizon DSL. It's a DSL Modem and Wireless router all wrapped up into one.
I've configured it to use OpenDNS, (Have the Family OpenDNS VIP package), and everything seems to work fine, except that I have can not find a way on my router to block the ability to bypass the DNS by locally assigning other DNS addresse.
I've done some searching and digging and it does indeed appear that I can not do that on this router. So my question is, am I missing something (IE: Is it possible to block), and if not, is there a DSL Modem/Router that I could purchase to replace this thing with that would allow me to use OpenDNS and also force using OpenDNS?
I did JUST start looking up info on the Netgear Parental Controls thing, as I saw it listed in the forums. Is that an option? Or are there Better options with what I"m trying to do?
I'm not tech illiterate, but configuring routers beyond the basics just isn't something I"ve done too much of. Although as I have on occasion setup a few game servers I have dug deep enough to get into port forwarding and all that fun stuff.
Any input/feedback and assistance would be quite appreciated!
And the only reason I'm really asking is that I have one person in my home, who if he can't get to what he wants, he WILL dig until he gets an answer, (He's just like his dad) :-) . For example I told him he was NOT allowed to route his kindle... so he dug and found other ways to do what he wanted to do. Smart cookie.
