Nice thread, very interesting details, thanks I've used OpenDNS ever since Oldsod, long ago, mentioned it in several threads. It's works well for me.The router goes there first if it can, goes to the ISP's DNS server, if it must. And all that is replicated in the network properties in Windows. In some instances, OpenDNS is included in the firewall as well.DNS service isn't running.
UnoJack, I didn't open any accounts. The less of them, the better
