Why do I need to block Public DNS Lookups?

Some services have begun using forced DNS lookups to Google and other public DNS servers that are hardcoded in the apps and devices. This effectively bypasses any DNS servers setup by you or your ISP which means Smart DNS services such as Unblockall will not work. In order for Unblockall to be able to work, your services have to use Unblockall server to resolve domain names. The only way to get around this issue is by setting up static routes or other methods to block your device from accessing Google, and other public DNS servers from supported routers.

Disclaimer: This is an advanced tutorial meant for users comfortable setting up routers. If settings get corrupt, you always have the option of resetting the router but make sure you make note of your current settings or back them up first. The instructions and commands are provided AS IS for you to try and may or may not work depending on your actual router and the features available for you.


Only select routers with 'IPv4 Route' option will work. 


Step 1 - Login to your Router

 

a. Type http://192.168.178.1 into the web browser address bar (also try http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.2.1)

 

b. Enter router username and password. The default username & password is usually admin for both. 

 

 

Step 2 - Add Static Routes


a.Click "Network" in the "Home Network" menu.


b.Click the "Network Settings" tab.


c.Click "IPv4 Routes".


d.Click the "New IPv4 Route" button.


Add the following to the Route list:

Network/Host IP: 8.8.8.8

Netmask: 255.255.255.252

Gateway: your router IP or add 1 to the last number of your router IP. So if the last number of your router IP is 1 (1 + 1 = 2 ) so your getaway IP will be 192.168.178.2 



e.Enable the option "IPv4 route active".


f.Click "OK" to save the settings.


g. Repeat steps C to F for the following routes for different hosts:



Network/Host IP: 8.8.4.4

Netmask: 255.255.255.252

Gateway:your router IP or add 1 to the last number of your router IP. So if the last number of your router IP is 1 (1 + 1 = 2 ) so your getaway IP will be 192.168.178.2 


Network/Host IP: 108.175.0.0

Network/Host IP: 23.246.0.0

Network/Host IP: 45.57.0.0

Network/Host IP: 185.2.0.0

Network/Host IP: 198.38.0.0

Network/Host IP: 198.45.0.0

Netmask: 255.255.0.0

Gateway: your router IP or add 1 to the last number of your router IP. So if the last number of your router IP is 1 (1 + 1 = 2 ) so your getaway IP will be 192.168.178.2 

 

Step 3 - Ping check


Please complete one of the following steps from a computer connected to the router:

 

a. Open the Command Prompt or Terminal.

Windows: Press  the Windows Key AND the R Key at the same time on your keyboard. Type in cmd and press Enter.  

Mac OSX: In the upper right corner of your screen, where the search function is, type in Terminal and open the program.  

 

b. Run the following commands:

Type in:ping 8.8.8.8

Type in:ping 8.8.4.4


The ping tests above should fail. If any of them give you a response, check your Static routes or reboot the router and try this step again until the pings fail. You might also need to use a different gateway IP such as 127.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.253. Essentially any unreachable IP that the router accepts should work. 

 

Step 4 - Power-Cycle Devices

 

a. Turn off your device.

 

b. Unplug the power cable from the router.

 

c. Wait 30 seconds.

 

d. Plug in router.

 

e. Turn on your device.
