Just installed OpenWrt 21.02.1 on a BT Home Hub 5A clone (Plusnet) to work with Nowtv (Sky) Internet. Performance is very good.
Two issues. Whenever I Try to login using the network address from Windows 10 I get
which makes connecting a paln. I think its a windoze thing as its the same with different browsers.
The next is some confusion on my part as to which DNS is being used. On the Status/Network/IP4 upstream the two DNS's listed are the sky ones. Whereas my preferred ones are listed in Network/ DHCP and DNS/ Server Settings. How can I tell which DNS is being used?
This is not an idle request. I need to know as I am thinking of setting up a pihole for advert suppression.
Keep in mind that DoH/proxy can be enabled/configured in the client browser and DNS forwarding on OpenWrt, so more comprehensive diagnostics is required in general case.
Also plain DNS can be hijacked by the upstream/ISP, making the result not so reliable.
Thanks for the info.
The certificate issue can be resolved by viewing and saving the certificate, then importing it into the browser. (took me ages to find so I thought Id restate).
The DNS issue is a bit odd (Thx oldnavyguy). My windows 10 machine sees the sky network DNS (ipconfig/all), despite the Network/DHCP and DNS/DNS forwardings set to google dns first and open dns second (126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52).
Not sure how its possible to configure pihole if dns requests can not be diverted.
