View Full Version : OpenDNS settings for Technicolor TG589vn

11-09-2013, 07:05 PM
Just got this router from Telecom to go to VDSL2, but I can't seem to configure the OpenDNS settings for it. I have tried entering settings in Dynamic DNS service, and DHCPv4 Pool LAN_Private.
OpenDNS won't work for some reason..

Any ideas? Thanks in advance...

Never mind - this worked : http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1877528

Weird how you have to go through command prompt to do it..

Dynamic DNS is for services like No-IP

You might be able to do it through the telnet interface but I've never tried

Have exactly the same challenge sahilcc7.

I also found similar links to the one you posted.

Would appreciate it if you could post the command lines you used as I struck a couple of concerns:
1. dns server route list - did not return a list of servers (only had add and flush options)
2. when used intf=Internet for adding OpenDNS servers the commend errored - as I did not get the list from the (1) I can not check the correct interface.

No looking for a CLI tutorial here (google for that) but seeing what worked for you would help me.

Cheers, ian

Not all the steps worked for me either.

1) Telnet (whatever your router IP is)

2) Enter password/user

3) dns server route list didn't work for me, so I proceeded to the next step.

4) dns server route add dns= metric=1 intf=Internet (change the IP to whatever dns you are using)

5) dns server route add dns= metric=2 intf=Internet (add second one)

6) config saveall

7) system reboot

Then wait for the router to restart and DNS should be working.

Just make sure you've enabled telnet in add/remove features.

Thanks for the prompt reply, other than needing to use PPPoE (see below) OpenDNS now up and running.

My command line in case it helps anyone else searching this topic:
{Administrator}=>dns server route add dns= metric=1 intf=Internet

Invalid interface name specified.
Bad value for parameter 'intf Internet'
Illegal option.
Unknown command.

{Administrator}=>dns server route add dns= metric=1 intf=PPPoE
{Administrator}=>dns server route add dns= metric=2 intf=PPPoE
{Administrator}=>config saveall
{Administrator}=>system reboot

Might do some further investigation into why I can't list the severs....;)
