In one of my recent articles, I explained how I set-up a guest wireless network for our work place (after getting it to work with the right wireless channel )
After configuring the guest access point, I set up the DNS servers to point to OpenDNS in order to provide a safer and faster DNS service (compared to the default DNS servers our ISP provides) as well as choosing what web-sites should be allowed on the network.
For example, bandwidth hogging (Media/Video Sharing) and other web-sites which could potentially be used for illicit purposes (P2P/File Sharing) are forbidden on the network.
DNS-O-Matic is a free service provided by OpenDNS. With DNS-O-Matic, you can propagate IP address changes across multiple services such as DynDNS, OpenDNS and many others.
With DD-WRT, you can set-up DNS-O-Matic so that your services stay updated with your IP changes as soon as they happen.
This article will very quickly go through the process of setting DNS-O-Matic on your DD-WRT powered router.
