DNS Configuration for Vodafone Ultrahub

by Troy Starter Poster
Message 1 of 6 (444 Views)

Hi,

 

I have previously been able to configure DNS settings to get all my traffic routed throuhg the OpenDNS DNS servers to protect my children from dodgey content.

 

https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/228006047-Generalized-Router-Configuration-Instruction...

 

After a firmware update, recommended by Vodafone as I couldnt set my own password on the router the ability to set the DNS IP's has gone.

 

I have searched this board and see a number of unanswered queries. I have also tried on the Internet DNS & DDNS page toggling the "Secure DNS" option but dont get presented with DNS IP addresses to enter.

 

How do I achieve this?

Any answer on this yet? I just posted the same question after discovering that OpenDNS is no longer working on the home network. I'm sure it was working previously. So I suspect the Jan 19 software update broke the DNS settings.

The ultra hub menu hasn't changed

 

DDNS is stilkl in the Admin profile under internet/ddns page

Chose the provider and enter the credentials

 

Or if tyou want to set a DNS IP go to the settings/lan page and enter the DNS IP and turn off DNS proxy and restart

Thanks for your help. I got it working.

 

Firstly, the IP address of the DNS would not edit until I started in the last octet. Once I cleared that with backspace, I was able to clear all 4 working backwards and then enter the new IP address for the OpenDNS DNS server.

I also turned off DNS proxy, and it all started working again, no need to reboot.
