    Not sure where to post this, but...

    I use ExtraDNS and I like it a lot. It means my ISP isn't logging everything I see (far as I can tell) and it's beautifully fast.

    And it stopped working around the time I changed my ISP and they installed their dialler. Basically, every time I set the DNS server address to localhost, it gets reset, and ExtraDNS is bypassed - or that's how it seems.

    Any suggestions on how to stop this, prove this, or win the lottery? What do ISPs' own diallers typically do? Should I just make my own connection using their phone number?

    Hi Checkout, :)

    Your last suggestion is what I always do.
    My ISP tries to get their program with easy acces to your mail, yadda, yadda, and more commercial info, installed as well.

    Make your own connection, fill out the number it's supposed to dial (and username and password, if you hate filling that out everytime) and off you go.

    No need to throw the old one away before the new one works. ;)

    Regards,

    Pieter
