Home networking and DNS routing...
I have 2 home networking questions that are related, and I pray that you will be able to help me.
My ISP is Time Warner, and I have been very satisfied with their broadband service in the 7 or so years that I have been with them. Lately, however, I decided to subscribe to their 'Turbo Plus' product, which guarantees 20 Mbps download and 2 Mbps upload speeds, or 20 x 2. I wanted this for a better gaming experience, and the faster downloading of large files, such as video files.
With installing the new 20 x 2 service, Time Warner installed a new Motorola Surfboard SBG6580 Wireless N Broadband Modem / Router. However, since the new device was put in, I have been getting 'DNS errors' on my PC and other devices, such as "Error - Server not found in DNS". I never received these with the previous device or service, so I believe that they are related to the new device's settings.
I was advised by a tech person that I know to subscribe to the OpenDNS service, and then 'simply' change the DNS IP addresses in the router. Unfortunately, I cannot find a place to set these in the router. There is, however, a place for Dynamic DNS, which uses www.dynDNS.org
I am able to change the DNS IP addresses in my Windows 7 network and sharing center, but this does not help my iPhone, PSP, or other devices on my network. Also, from the OpenDNS site, I read that it is 'better' to make the change in the whole network (router), rather than on each individual device.
So, the questions:
Please advise me as to how I should proceed. Your kind consideration of my issue is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
