Is it even possible to block Google DNS on 850L B1?

(1/6) > >>

I saw a post on other site you can block Google DNS by using "access control". Now how do I access it on B1 hardware?
I tried using static route option that just does not work.
I saw screenshot of A1 router page they have that orange UI which includes access control settings. Am I missing something or is it not possible on B1?


* Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
* What region are you located?
Is there anything under Firewall or Port Forwarding?

Rev B models have different UI and them. Some features were removed in Rev B models.

No such thing as "status". It is listed at the top of the page. It is FW2.09. I am in Asia. It came from my ISP.

Some features were removed in B models? That sucks. I need to block Google DNS.

I tried using Firewall to block it but it does not work. I don't know if it is my settings or it just refuses to work I'm not good at these things.

You might ask your ISP if they can help you block Google DNS.
if this router came from them, they maybe handling the FW on the router. Some ISPs do this, which D-Links stock FW may not work on it.

Another suggestion, find a DDNS service and use it's DNS IP addresses on the router and enable DNS Relay. This will use specific DNS for all connected devices. You can set up blocking of sites and such with the DDNS service.

Last resort, you might try some 3rd party FW like DD-WRT or OpenWRT if they support his model router.

Unfortunately I don't think my ISP offers this kind of service. I tried asking them once they ask me to contact DLink support instead.

DDNS? I don't know how to set it up. Also I don't think it will work on chromecast as this is the only device I want to block Google DNS from as chromecast always use hardcoded DNS. Blocking Google DNS from the router is the only way to bypass this.

DD-WRT and OpenWRT do not support this router.

Anyway thanks for the reply.
