Static IP Routing

Hi,

I'm trying to change the Static Route/Static IP Routing so that the modem bypasses google's DNS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.8.4).

Can you explain how I can do this please as I can't see the option in any of the settings.

Thanks

Unfortunately I don't think this is possible with the LTE modems "out of the box". But read on ... there is one thing you can try.

Under the Settings, Security menu, there is a Firewall Settings option you could turn on called Enable IP Address Filter. Then you could filter out 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 traffic.

BUT ...

I think this IP Address Filter probably only works for Incoming traffic, that is from 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. But give it a try and see if that is really true. If you're lucky, it might work for Incoming and Outgoing traffic.

Assuming that my guess is correct, and IP Address Filter won't help you with Outgoing traffic, the only other way I can think of to make this work would be to introduce a second device into your network. e.g. connect all your devices through a new WiFi Access Point (AP) and have that new AP then forward all its traffic out to the Internet through the LTE modem. The new AP could be configured so as to prevent any traffic going to those IP addresses.

There is an FAQ article which explains how you might go about this:

You need at least a basic level of understanding of networking, as you're setting up "a network inside a network" to make this work.

You need to be sure that the AP you buy has a firewall function and allows traffic for specified IPs (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) to be blocked.

You would also need to be sure that any devices/software which is trying to use Google DNS will continue to work properly even if access to Google DNS has been blocked.

googles dns is 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 thats googles public dns

as for setting it go to 192.168.1.1 the modems address and than click on networking than click on dhcp than click on the first dns server than put in 8.8.8.8 the second dns server put 8.8.4.4
that will set the dns servers setting to googles

but if your using a router ie not the home gateway ie Vivid HOme gateway Or Vivid LTE HOmegate Way than YOu Need to REad the Routers Manual Or maybe get in contact with Frosty
