My mobile (cell) provider in the UK is 3 MOBILE. The location where I live has extremely poor network signal strength so 3 Mobile provided me with a femtocell which provides a strong signal throughout the house. This works via the internet and is connected to an Ethernet port on my router. After I installed OpenDNS and set up my filtering option to 'Low', the device lost its connection to the internet. I reset my options to 'None', rebooted the signal booster and it started working OK again.
It appears that whatever service the device connects to may be recognised by OpenDNS as a proxy or anonymiser service.
I checked the back of the unit to see what information is provided and can only find the IMEI number and a MAC address. My router shows that it is connected and has its own IP address and SSID.
Is there any way that I can white-list this device so that it doesn't get blocked again?
