Windows 7: open dns not working through zyxel router

open dns not working through zyxel router

hi, I know this is more of a windows forum, but when I was searching this is the place most of my searches lead me too. Right now I'm in Russia using a Zyxel Keenetic router, which works fine without using OpenDns. There doesn't seem to be a model number either, just Keenetic. There's no way that I've found to change to point to the Open DNS servers on the router, only on the individual computers, maybe there's a conflict. The 4g company I'm going through is Yota. When I try to use OpenDNS the internet might work for a site or two but then stops. When I use the standard windows troubleshooting, it says the problem is the DNS server isn't responding. Also it doesn't work on those other guys' computers either. I'm using windows 7 Ultimate. Thanks for your time,

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Hi Tony and welcome to W7 Forums

Take a look at pages 26 onwards of the manual. It seems to be regarding DNS. Sorry, but it's in Russian, so I can't give any more help than that.

Network Monitor for Router (ZyXel Q1000Z)
I recently switched ISPs to CenturyLink. While faster and cheaper then CableOne, it doesn't have a cap. CableOne offers 50mb for a few dollars more but has a 50g cap. This may effect me big time as I'm a big fan of Netflix streaming via Roku. Thing is, I can't monitor what's going thru Roku...

Zyxel G-260
I connect my Zyxel G-260 wireless network USB-device to the Windows 7 based computer. I hear the sound "New device added" but 7 doesn't do anything. It can not detect the device or doesn't ask me to install drivers. I can not use Internet without that device. Any idea what to do?
