I started using opendns about 2 months ago, and have a dynamic IP. I have the Opendns IP updater. It seems that I'm getting SOMEONE ELSES logs. Some of the activity IS ours at times, but some of it has NOTHING to do with our family and I can only conclude that it belongs to another user (login pages to universities a state away, login pages to remote fleet management, xfinity wifi login page, which we don't have, etc.) . The same strange queries keep coming up (like the xfinity logins and other pages that keep reoccuring days apart)
This happens on days where my IP hasn't changed for days (so it's not a fluke that happens on a "change" day, as I have been told by some people).
I frequently get the HTTP IP / DNS IP Mismatch error. I figured out that this is because Tmobile (my isp) hijacks NXdomain responses, so my DNS Ip is 188.8.131.52. At least that's what the Opendns updater tells me. This is not the same IP listed at the top of my dashboard, or the IP that updates when the updater runs. I was told by my ISP that I have a private, dedicated dynamic IP. And that if i upgrade to get a static IP, these problems will probably go away and the logs will be mine.
Does anyone have any insight here??? I don't want to go through all of that (it requires yet another router upgrade) if it isn't going to help. I will still have the same ISP, only static. I'm not even sure this will change anything??
