Weird Router Problem


#1

Router : Calix
ISP : Du
Country : United Arab Emirates

  1. After I change the DNS in the router and I type 1.1.1.1 into any browser, it automatically opens up the router login page

  2. When I ping, it is pinging my router

Although the routers ip is the most common one 192.168.1.1

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately there are a number of manufacturers who thought using 1.1.1.1 for their own purposes was a good idea even though they don’t own the IP address range. You can hopefully use 1.0.0.1 and Cloudflare’s IPv6 addresses for the DNS servers.

Perhaps at some point the manufacturer may come out with an update to fix their choice of DNS servers.

I was in Dubai briefly a couple of years ago. The UAE is a beautiful place. Glad to see Cloudflare in use there. :slight_smile:

Glad to know! Thanks for telling me.

I hope you can have a server here.

Here is the tracert on Du

Tracing route to 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com [1.0.0.1]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 1 ms 3 ms 3 ms DeviceDHCP.Home [192.168.1.1]
2 11 ms 11 ms 25 ms xxxxxx
3 12 ms 11 ms 12 ms 10.100.128.13
4 16 ms 13 ms 12 ms 10.100.34.78
5 15 ms 17 ms 16 ms 10.142.57.34
6 55 ms 54 ms 55 ms cloudflare.v4.peers.djix.dj [196.223.38.207]
7 55 ms 55 ms 54 ms 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com [1.0.0.1]

It is going to Djibouti.
