I'm using TL-WR841N (V11), here's manual to it -> https://www.tp-link.com/us/user-guides/tl-wr841n_v14/
I'm also using linux on my machine.
The router stays behind the modem which is protected by the random password of the ISP, but I've managed to configure my second router to use OpenDNS.
The main goal is to block youtube site and also youtube video media player with these domain names (it's not only for youtube)
This does not work however.
I've run several commands to test this:
$ nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com. 188.8.131.52
which.opendns.com text = "r6.wrw1"
Authoritative answers can be found from:
$ nslookup youtube.com
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
So it works, but when I execute traceroute on the youtube dns
$ traceroute youtube.com
It forwards the request to the modem. Again - I do not have access to the modem's configuration panel.
In my router configuration panel I got Primary DNS and Second DNS set up to use the same OpenDNS IP, but the gateway is set to the modem's local IP.
Is there anything I can do other than changing the ISP? Also If there's anything more info I can provide please let me know, I'll do it!
