Yeah ive noticed the hijacking as well. No way to change the DNS AT ALL!
google DNS no longer works. yet to try a VPN.
glad they added the log file access but i had that on the V3 AC (after getting admin password etc.. )
@WallyWalrick - is the Optus WAN IP assigned to the F@ST5366TN using IPv6 only? I wonder if that is somehow influencing the DNS function to be limited to the internal Optus preferred settings or just the way the modem currently functions. There doesn't appear to be a way of changing DNS settings in the F@ST386V3AC or the F@ST3864V3HP in standard menu offerings that I can see.
If you edit your client PC Network Adapter Setting to external DNS Server addresses, are you saying that the adapter settings also get overridden by the modem's DNS Servers? That seems to be occurring with your AccessPoints.
Na its uses IPv4 only. Cant adjust for IPv6 at all.
My PC network is set to 220.127.116.11 for obvious reasons but gets changed once it goes through the modem.
I actually managed to get the config file for the V3AC modem .. and decrypted the admin password and accessed the full firmware when you could change settings. The same tricks to get the admin password dont exist on the 5366. 😕
Basically I cant access eztv.io any more. Get the copyrite page. Swap back to the v3ac modem and no problem.
@khios is correct.
The 5366TN still uses IPv4 on the WAN.
"If you edit your client PC Network Adapter Setting to external DNS Server addresses, are you saying that the adapter settings also get overridden by the modem's DNS Servers? That seems to be occurring with your AccessPoints."
Exactly right. Changing the DNS server addresses to static on a Windows 10 machine to ANY IPv4 address doesn't help, the modem overrides your static DNS settings on any LAN device.
hoping with enough time someone works out how to extract a clear text of the config file so we can decode the admin password to access the full firmware. By nice if optus would give us the admin password.. but not holding my breath haha 😉
