Have been using unblock-us for over 18 months now with TCL and have managed to get over their transparent proxy service because most of their services don't use port 80 which TCL's transparent proxy doesn't intercept.

But this morning I noticed that all my devices (mainly wifi ones) that get their DNS address from the router (which has the unblock DNS servers entered) could not longer access the Internet. The only way I could make them work was to manually configure the wifi connection on the wireless device to have static IP and code specific DNS server addresses (TCL's ones).

I wonder if TCL has done something last night (it was working yesterday) to change the way their transparent proxy works or are doing perhaps DNS hijacking.

Anybody else with the similar situation experiencing this problem?

 

Thanks

[EDIT]

Might have been a momentary hiccup.

This morning I was getting this from nslookup

nslookup check.unblock-us.com 208.122.23.23
Server: UnKnown
Address: 208.122.23.23

But later I got this

nslookup check.unblock-us.com 208.122.23.23
Server: UnKnown
Address: 208.122.23.23

seem to suffering from a general Unblock-US problem so may not be specific to TCL
