    What's that mean? Also, I can confirm that the games are automatically updated with the US server. Is this normal?

    I still get firmware updates and game update prompts with 90dns. Haven't tried the tester yet.

    You can go to goldleaf settings and clear update from there. You still need to reboot to get rid of the install prompts.

    Both france and USA servers work for me.
    Blame ISP if it's not working.

    You're in the UK, what isp did you test on? If it's Sky then it won't work unless you dump Sky's shitty router and use your own.

    You can:

    Phone Sky, tell them you want to use custom dns and ask for a firmware rollback. Dns proxy was only added to the Sky router when Sky Buddy launched. Mixed results, some people get a roll back, others get told it's not policy anymore. Also fairly risky as even if they do rollback, if the router updates again for whatever reason, your blocks will stop working again.

    Dump the crappy Sky router. The transparent proxy is router side. No Sky router, no proxy.




    Router runs a transparent dns proxy for their sky buddy parental control app. Controls are based on dns filtering, so has to lock you to Sky's dns servers to not be easily bypassed. Sky were too lazy to make it a switch, so it (dns proxy, not filtering) is on regardless of whether you pay for the sky buddy service or not.

    PC you can still use custom dns that are encrypted, but switch is out of luck there. Easier to just replace the router and be done with any hassle.

    I used the tester using the US DNS on my Switch and it's telling me that everything is unblocked. My ISP is Xfinity. Is something up with that ISP?

    Edit: Firmware version is 9.0.1, using the Kosmos package.

    Apparently some ISP routers got some transparent DNS that causing the issue. Because of Parental filters.

    Yeah, I saw.
    Not much to be done with them except for getting a non-shit router sadly, but for those whose blocks are done on ISP level and not router level, you can simply place something like raspberry pi zero at your own house and set up your local 90dns instance on it. Repo has instructions for that.

    Without reading all pages, just to make sure:
    Those problems only appear when using 90DNS through a router, not if using 90DNS through the Switch's internet connection settings, correct?
