Comcast's walled gargen

Comcast has traditionally run their walled gardens by using DNS redirection, and not HTML/code injection.

This has caused me trouble in the past when I migrated to a new account that wasn't activated properly, because I explicitly use non-Comcast DNS servers for my router (which in turn acts as a caching and ad-blocking DNS server for all computers on my LAN). All I saw was failed DNS lookups.

I do the same. I run my own DNS server.
