    Hi to the Open Dns Forums.

    is there anyone using the O2 wireless box II, if so need some assistance to setting up my router to use open dns, as i do not have a clue on how to use the O2 for setting up DNS settings.

    thanks jimmy.

    It will be hard to wait for someone having the same router. But as you seem to have troubles using a simple internet search, I was so free to do it for you and revealed the following useful stuff:

    Because this is a Thomsom SpeedTouch based router, you'll have to tweak it with the CLI via telnet.

    Too bad that the internet search engines don't work for you... :sad:

    i have had a look at some of those links and as for to tweak it with the CLI via telnet. is a bit too complicated for me, i will just stick to the PC DNS and just leave the router settings as they are none me if i were to tweak the CLI via telnet, i would mess it up so i will leave at that.

    thanks again jimmy.

    to change your DNS use http://192.168.1.254/ewizard.htm

    keep clicking next until you get to the DNS page then just enter the OpenDNS address and follow the instructions until the configuration completes.

    Unfortunately the wizard doesn't work on the O2 supplies router.

    The link provided by rotblitz

    This is now the active link:
