    Thanks for the link Ron. I did fairly well. Test run while Google Chrome browser as default. retried it with opera and got the same results.

    Using TreeWalk, results are showing a strange discrepancy if compared with some other similar tests available online...

    Yes, half year ago someone crashed my router remotely and irreversibly.
    I block Level 3 Communications, Inc by default since then I feel better.

    How do I increase my DNSSEC security on a D-Link 655N router?
    That's my only weak spot.

    Hello,
    The implementation of nameserver query security is the responsibility of the ISP, including all potentially malicious traffic on their segments.

    I have tried to run this test but can't seem to do so. I have tried allowing scripts globally in NoScript and allowing outgoing DNS/DHCP in my software firewall thinking they might be what is blocking the test but to no avail. I am not sure what else could be blocking it. I don't use any other ad-blocking software. When I attempt to use the test this is what I see:

    What good is any security test when you have to turn off some or all of your security to run said test?

    Hello,
    Firebytes, it seems your ISP does not allow recursion on queries. Which is a good thing. The have their slaves forward to the master and only master can query higher-level DNS. This prevents lots of random junk hopping about.

    Mrkvonic,

    Thanks for the explanation. I had tried everything I could think of locally to allow the test to run, even tried completely disabling NoScript temporarily.

    Thanks again

    I will receive this same message if I go and block TreeWalk's internet access in my firewall...
