[TWC] Central Florida TWC: DNS issues

Hello all,

I have a Ubee 3201b and I was wondering if there were any ways to switch it over to opendns without the need for a bridge (don't have an extra router at the moment).

Also, a strange thing that is happening: the ubee's firewall has been detecting a lot of port scans, and floods (UDP, TCP, SYN). I did an ip lookup on the source of all of these and it was coming from road runners dns server. Any explanation for this?

Chuck first things first....we aren't TWC. We're Bright House and while we do work with TWC on SOME things...two entirely different companies...

And to your question no...you do not have your choice of DNS without bridging the modem and just ignore the FW logs. Honestly there should be almost no reason to look at them beyond just being curious and even then don't get all worked up over what you see there. Nobody is trying to hack you and even then they aren't getting through unless you invite them in through one of the various methods.
