ViaSat Exede vs OpenDNS

Recommended Posts

Welcome to testmy.net Mr.Davis

This is not the first time we have heard of what is called dns hijacking from the ISP, it seems to be an ongoing issue , where the ISP has for some reason or another decided you must use there dns , and will not allow changes.

In the community this is not a deed taken lightly, nor is it deemed even legal in many circles.

Can you explain just where your setting the new dns ie: router or local machine

There are many complaints about wildblue , then again , many as well about many ISP's

If you set the OpenDNS IP's on your local machine there is no way they can change them, so just set it there.

True , at the same time the modem will over ride anything before it by setting the dns the local machine is forwarded to , to the modem / router IP which the ISP has control over. So if windows is set to auto detect and the dns ( unless manually set ) to standards, the modem / router would be considered a secondary dns forwarder. No ?
