I'm on a network in India where it seems OpenDNS has taken over. I have experienced it for a few weeks now and I hate it with a passion. No longer do DNS queries fail as they should, but they return 188.8.131.52, which then goes redirecting to website-unavailable.com which is a low quality search page with deceptive advertising and a tiny message at the top saying "you tried to access X which isn't responding", or whatever the problem is.
I have tried changing the primary and secondary DNS servers to 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 (Google's public DNS servers) on the router and rebooting it. Ditto on the individual machines. But these don't seem to have changed anything. I presume the ISP is somehow overriding it.
C:\>nslookup broken Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com Address: 18.104.22.168 Non-authoritative answer: Name: broken Address: 22.214.171.124
This I really don't understand. What is OpenDNS doing? How can I get rid of it and return to sanity?
