Is there a way to bypass my ISP provided CPE/router's DNS settings? I'd like to use OpenDNS but I am unable to access the administrator acount of the CPE. I tried logging in using the default passwords (admin/admin, admin/1234, etc) to no avail.
I found out later that the admin password is generated using a generator where you input the CPE's MAC address. I tried emailing the manufacturer of the CPE (Huawei, the CPE is Huawei BM625) and my ISP but they aren't replying. I also saw similar queries (lots of them!) at Huawei's forums, without a single reply.
So as a last resort, I'd like to know a way to bypass the CPE's DNS settings.
My subscription is for a WiMAX service. I'm using Windows 7 and have already set the DNS settings for the Local Area Connection:
However I still am not seeing the "You are already using OpenDNS" text at OpenDNS's site.
And when explicitly using the OpenDNS servers I still seem to get 18.104.22.168 rather than the expected 22.214.171.124:
