PlusNet new Modem/Router Hub One no changes allowed and nslookup returns not OpenDNS reslover

    "nslookup also returns that it will not redirect OpenDNS either."

    Can you post the complete command output as plain text here?  I want to understand what you're saying here.  It may be that you have two problems, your ISP hi-jacking your DNS traffic, and you router not allowing to specify DNS resolver addresses.

    And yes, there may be options to use OpenDNS nevertheless.

    If I understand you right, this thread may be able to help you further:

    After reading other link. I have emailed Plusnet support and requested the unblock OpenDNS so I can at least set up each device in my home individually to use their servers. I await their response. They may simply refuse.

    "requested the unblock OpenDNS"

    This may be too restrictive.  It's not really about OpenDNS, but about any 3rd party DNS service you may ever want to use.  I cannot imagine that they have restricted and redirected OpenDNS only, but any DNS traffic in general, same as a few other ISPs do for whatever reason.

    But beside this, you investigated correctly and took appropriate measures.  Good luck!
