OpenDNS

 Hi,

 

Just receieved my Hub Two Box, but I cannot find how to update the DNS settings.  I need to point the DNS to OpenDNS rather than google (8.8.8.8 etc) as I have spent a lot of time configuring OpenDNS to protect family connections.

 

Usually, DNS config is in the LAN settings, but not on Hub Two.  Where is the DNS configuration?

 

Second question - there are only three dynamic DNS options - all are old services and becoming out of date ans all require a fee or repeated re-registration.  Can the list be updated to include some newer dynamic DNS services.  The one I use is called DNSDynamic.org.

 

Cheers.

Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately NOW TV Hubs don't let you change DNS settings, you'd need to change DNS settings on each individual device instead.

NOW are looking for users to join their Customer Feedback Group and help improve the service. If you're interested read more here and sign up.

Thanks for the info - that is really disappointing.  I guess I will be using my own router then!

Why is this limitation? Is there an alternative parental control service offered by Now TV? I know how to block individual sites and keywords in router settings but that is not as effective as OpenDNS. I also know how to set DNS server on individual devices but that is a PIA.

Well that's really poor! They should advise of this before joining. I also have pages of ODNS config set up. Might have to buy a modem or see if I can use my old Vodafone router instead. Only has 2 ethernet ports as well which breaks my home office and powerline adaptors.
