I am running Method 1 of this post (also featured here: http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/relayclient) and it is working great. Thank you.
I am an ex-pat and want to try either a VPN or a DNS proxy service like unblock-us, the latter being perhaps easier for me to setup.
Can I change DNS settings on the router and have them take effect when I'm just using it as a repeater and don't have admin access to the main router?
in etc/config/network I already have (from the wiki)
config interface 'lan'
option dns '126.96.36.199'
but that doesn't seem to have an effect when I try to see what dns I am actually using from say www.dnsleaktest.com or the fact that I sometimes get a blocked message from opendns (which is what the main router uses)
I have also tried following this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpos … stcount=36 which has in etc/config/dhcp
option resolvfile '/etc/resolv.conf'
option strictorder 1
and then in /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver x.x.x.x (fill in the dns servers here)
That also didn't seem to work for me. Whereas for example, just changing the dns servers in OS X did work, but I'd prefer it on the router for all devices.
