Is my ISP blocking 1.1.1.1 dns?

Hi, my ISP is Wishnet Private Limited India (https://wishnet.in/), and dns of my ISP is 110.172.55.126. I have configured the Cloudflare’s DNS 1.1.1.1/1.0.0.1 in my Router’s settings. But whenever I’m browsing this site (https://whoer.net/) its showing my ISP’s DNS.
Why is this happening? Is my ISP blocking Cloudflare’s DNS?

What does

ipconfig /all

show?

DNS Servers: 192.168.0.1
which is same as the default gateway of my router (through which I access the router login page)

Run this test
https://1.1.1.1/help

and paste the generated link please. If the connectivity test fails, run a

tracert 1.1.1.1

and Post the full results here. Blur out the first two or three HOPs which will show your IP information.

Another try could be to replace the current primary with 1.0.0.1

It’s showing me these results
(and sorry for late reply, I guess we’re in different time zones respectively :sweat_smile:)

@MarkMeyer Please Help me to resolve this issue!

Yes, we are :wink:

Sorry for the late reply, but we all do this in our spare time.

Can you post a screenshot of your router’s DHCP settings? IIRC there’s also a DNS option

These are the screenshots of DHCP
(sorry but I can’t understand about IIRC as you mentioned)
(and thank you for helping me out to resolve this issue, I appreciate it! and I hope we’ll be able to find a solution)

DHCP_2

Replace the DNS Servers there with Cloudflare’s after that run the following commands

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

If I remember correctly

:slight_smile:

@MarkMeyer Hi buddy, sorry for late(very late :sweat_smile:) reply.
As you mentioned above, I have changed the DNS Servers to Cloudflare’s DNS in DHCP Settings and also run the ipconfig /release & ipconfig /renew commands.

but at this website https://whoer.net/ its still showing the ISP’s DNS

That’s odd. According to the traceroute your ISP at least isn’t hijacking them.

Let’s go hardcore. Follow the guide below to enable DoH with Cloudflare in Chrome directly. Re-Ceck afterwards If something has changed

And probably try a different leak test like

https://www.dnsleaktest.com/

result after trying DNS Leak Test (although I tried it before and got the same result)

Did you follow the ZDNet article?

Yeah even after following ZDNet article I’m getting these results >>>

I am running out of ideas. :confused:

Please execute the following command and post the results here

netsh winhttp show proxy

Result >>>

C:\Users\Sony>netsh winhttp show proxy

Current WinHTTP proxy settings:

    Direct access (no proxy server).

I believe, since Chrome made it a flag, you can no longer use the CLI flag for enabling DoH. The behavior is solely based on chrome://flags/#dns-over-https being enabled and your OS’s DNS set to 1^4.

I don’t know whether I’m facing a similar issue or not but there were other cases pertaining to the blocking (or something like that) of Cloudflare’s DNS by other Indian ISPs.
