Forums Service Issues Setups & Configurations Was working, not now…please help.

    I changed my Primary DNS Server settings on my WD N600 Router to 185.228.168.168 and the Secondary DNS to 185.228.169.168.  It worked fine when I set it up a few days ago.  Those settings are still in place, but now Reddit works again, and the badexample.com site is no longer blocked.

    I did have my 19 year old son as if Reddit was being blocked…could he have changed something so that those settings do nothing now??

    Thanks for any help.

    Can you confirm the settings are still in the router? If they are, please go to your computer and paste these commands on the command prompt:

    nslookup -type=txt whoami.lua.powerdns.org
    ipconfig /all
    nslookup -type=txt -class=chaos version.bind 185.228.168.10
    nslookup -q=TXT mylocation.whois.dnscontest.cleanbrowsing.org 185.228.168.10

     

    It will tell us more what is going on.

    thanks

    So, the day after I posted it was working again.  Just checked it now and it is not working.

    Router settings are still good.  I typed in the commands…hope I did it correctly.   If not, let me know.
