Re: DNS question, E3200

Thanks for the reply aefstoggaflm.

Thanks for the explanation. I'm not a constant tweaker, but more of a person who likes to set up my network one time in an efficient manner and forget about it. When I get a new piece of hardware sometimes I overlook the obvious before asking questions, and the entry for the DNS is fairly obvious now that you've pointed it out

I did try DD-WRT and settled on Tomato when I had my WRT54G before I had the Belkin, so I am familiar with both. If I can achieve what I need with the OEM firmware I'll probably leave it on at least until the warranty expires.

I'm assuming that Treewalk would be better than relying on external DNS, I just didn't know if anyone was still using it since I've read some reports on possible security issues. What do you use for DNS?

Not a problem and I don't blame you.

In my case: Sort of the same thing, but I tend to keep my network secure. For example if a security issue comes out, I mgiht have to address it.

Right now, external DNS provided by my ISP. That is not say, that I will not use another DNS Server in the future...

Unknown too but I can tell that, all DNS Servers have security issue(s).

Where by all DNS Servers, I mean External and Internal.

Of course by Internal DNS Server, this usually for example means one installed on a computer behind a router.

Here is some info from en.wikipedia.org with a comparison of DNS server software.
