Recent changes to network configuration in the latest updates of the consoles’ apps for Netflix are now forcing Google DNS to be used by those devices. Unfortunately, this process forces your PC/Mac/Modem/Router to use Google’s DNS service rather than Smart DNS Proxy.
There is not much that can be done at the consoles’ level but if you have a Linux-based router, which supports iptables, (DD-WRT, OpenWRT or Tomato), you can make Google DNS to be redirected to our DNS.
If you have a DD-WRT router or any other Linux-based router, you can bypass forcing Google’s DNS using your routers custom firewall rules.
In order to do this, please follow these steps:
1. Log in to your DD-WRT router and select Setup and then Basic Setup.
2. Scroll down to Network Address Server Settings (DHCP) and Enable DHCP.
3. Disable Use DNSMasq for DNS. Scroll down and Click on Apply Settings.
4. On your DD-WRT control panel, select ADMINISTRATION from the top right section. Then Select Commands from the tabs below.
5. Paste Followings to the Commands Shell > Commands section.
iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination 220.127.116.11
iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination 18.104.22.168
iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p tcp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination 22.214.171.124
iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p tcp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination 126.96.36.199
6. Click on Save Startup. If needed Paste the above code again and then Click on Save Firewall.
Reboot your router and then every device connected to your router will be benefiting from Smart DNS Proxy.
