Re: Huawei B818-263 DNS

@Jack_YCGota love the response.....sales blurb.....

 

@icepickI normally you setup the DNS settings on the devices if I need to override the DHCP DNS settings in order to use Google DNS (8.8.8.8 & 4.4.4.4) or different provider if you need one.

 

I checked the LTE H Monitor app for the B818 api interface and could not find any DNS. Looks like the Optus firmware may have had this removed (Optus love to remove stuff in the modems they sell as a "feature"...grrrrrr).

 

Optus support will be as useful as the previous Optus support post was based on my past experience with a few different 4G modems over the years.

"Optus support will be as useful as the previous Optus support post was based on my past experience with a few different 4G modems over the years."

 

That's the conclusion I have come to. 

 

Third party modem it is.

@icepick 

Login to the B818 using a Chrome Based Browser, Chrome, Edge, Opera etc
Click Advanced at the Top Menu, then Router on the left menu and DHCP.
Bring up the developer window in the browser and paste $('#dhcp_dns').show();
This brings a hidden menu and you have the option to manually set the dns servers.

@Tigers1719Thanks very much for this. Any links to other hidden features? Was this on the whirlpool B818 mega thread?

@AndS
Yes I posted it in the Whirlpool thread.
The command was part of a set of commands used to manually set the DNS servers in the B525.
The OP replied you only need the command I posted in here. I have been using non Optus DNS servers for about 18 months on the B525 and B818.
I don't have any other commands to access hidden B818 settings.
