My girlfriend was browsing the web last night on this wireless connection and clicked my Google home page, only to get the ‘‘Untrusted site’’ page. I then went to yahoo.com and clicked on the youtube link only to be taken to some iranian website.
Clicked on another websearch link and it took me to a totally different website. Did an AV scan - all clean. Did an MBAR scan - all clean. I checked my connection info and it said ‘‘Unidentified Network’’. It’s now back to my normal connection name with everything working fine.
There’s 2 routers in the place i’m staying. Since they put the 2nd router in i quite often have to turn off both routers to get a wireless connection.
Had one of those ‘‘Another computer on this network has the same IP address as this computer’’ pop ups today.
I’m staying in a hotel in SE Asia, and the 2nd router was put in as the signal from the original was poor. Just checked my DNS number and its the following : 18.104.22.168
Did a google search and i think thats the old Comodo free DNS???
Was my DNS hacked for a short while?
I selected to use Comodo’s Secure DNS during installation (Clean install, v8.2), clean install of Windows 7.
I just checked the DNS the computer is using.
This above link says I am not on secure DNS.
So, what am I connecting to?
These above IPs are the servers 8.2 set up on this computer (clean Windows install, clean CIS install).
If 8.2 is using old servers, then this is a serious bug that needs be remedied asap.
22.214.171.124/126.96.36.199 as I understand it, is what CIS should have set up on here, correct?
I’m at a loss. Even after changing the DNS (IPv4) to the new numbers and rebooting, I am still being told I’m not using Secure DNS.
What is wrong here?
Have reset to the original servers CIS set up.
I am currently using an Eastlink Motorola router. I am not about to change their router’s DNS server settings in case this router ends up with another user that doesn’t want their sites blocked/filtered.
Try running the extended test of https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ if it shows Comodos DNS then it’s set up fine, if it shows your ISPs DNS then they might “hijack” the DNS request, although I don’t think ISPs usually do that.
