Open DNS

Hi

Is it possible for me to use Open DNS with my Plusnet Hub one router?

Thanks

Gav

Re: Open DNS

Hi @Gavin,

 

It's not possible to change the DNS server settings from within the Hub One, I'm afraid. If you would like to use Open DNS, I would recommend that you change the DNS settings within each individual device.

Re: Open DNS

You can't change the DNS settings on the Hub One so unfortunately not, nothing to stop you changing the DNS settings on the connected devices though.

eta: SNAP!

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Re: Open DNS

Thanks for the reply.  Not what I was hoping for, lots of kids with lots of devices (and they're more savvy than me!)

Can I use a third party router with the Plusnet service?

 

Thanks

Re: Open DNS

Yes, you can use your own router. But what is it you are trying to achieve with Open DNS?

It sounds like your kids will get around whatever restrictions you are trying to impose.

Re: Open DNS

Some customisable filtering along with some new AV software might keep them occupied for a while!
