Hitron CGNM-2250 modem setup
I just received my new modem from Shaw. And new it is: not tutorials to setup Open DNS. Is there anyone that can help? Hitron CGNM-2250 modem setup
Here are some windows:
Unfortunately my "users" are highly technical, manage their own computers/devices - and I'm likely not going to have a PC of my own on the network/be present where the hardware is located.
This forces me to secure internet access at the point of supply - the router - and to try and figure out some way to do DDNS for remote management without having to run a software client on a PC somewhere.
For the cost of the router/modem from Shaw, the functionality to do this should have been provided.
It's always the same principle: you enter OpenDNS resolver addresses into DNS server fields. This does not really need to be documented. It's simple and self-explaining...
First try to configure the OpenDNS resolver addresses 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 under "WAN Setup" (2nd screen). If this does not help, configure them under "DNS" (first screen). You must also configure DNSv6 (IPv6) with e.g. ::ffff:d043:dedc and ::ffff:d043:dcde in case your ISP provides you with IPv6 connectivity.

You're pretty much out of luck with a crippled / trimmed-down ISP device. Your options:
- Use another router, in addition or instead.
- Configure the built-in firewall of the end user device.
- Use an own internal DNS server.
- Especially, let your users use regular accounts, not admin accounts.
