Re: Can't connect over Wi-Fi

@OP

They may be blocking UDP traffic on port 443, since in reality the only application using port 443 will be a browser and browsers don't generate UDP traffic, they generate TCP traffic.

Try setting TCP in the widget and see what happens.

@FoodMaven

Is the exit node based in the U.S. (or wherever the sports app is expecting it)?

Discarding Opera/Mini solved the green/red problem. I'm on the CS "darknet". I don't think of this as "dark" I see it as the light at the end of the tunnel . But that's haberdashery. Sorry. I see what you did there. :D But yes, by providing a transparent connection to Tor and I2...

Re: Help - DNSCrypt Breaking Websites

@OP The standard DNS protocol is completely unencrypted and unauthenticated. That means that it can be both intercepted and redirected to a completely different DNS server than the one you think you are using, so not only can your DNS traffic be captured and perused in-flight, all of your DNS reque...

Re: DNScrypt widget issues, look here. On your second point, does the widget have the option to use TCP instead of UDP?

@OP

OK, I understand that you have two router devices, but do both of them have WiFi, or only one? If it's only one, is it the ISP-provided device? If it's both, are you absolutely sure you're connecting to the OpenWRT device one via WiFi?

So this is a separate device from your OpenWRT router, yes? Could it be that you have connected to its WiFi in error, rather than the OpenWRT router's WiFi? (I have to ask).

Re: 'Puter is up at CS.is/test but wifi is isp ip addresses

@OP OK, thank you for that. From what I can see, br-lan is the bridge between Wi-Fi and Ethernet and is used by your router to send/receive traffic across your LAN - it's also why both Ethernet and WiFi clients receive IP addresses in the same subnet range. 104.238.195.140 is the IP address of the ...

Re: Internet is broken after the update v3.13

@Surcouf

There was an issue with some of the nodes yesterday in terms of passing traffic through them, but that has been since corrected and does not reflect on any issue with the client. Can you check through the nodes again and list which ones are causing issues?

Thanks. :)

Re: 'Puter is up at CS.is/test but wifi is isp ip addresses

@OP I don't physically have one of these routers so I can't actually test it, but it looks like the Ethernet and the WiFi interfaces are already bridged together, which is why devices connected to either are given an IP address in the 192.168.1.x range. Can you post the routing table for your route...

Staff have patched the quietest nodes first, since it will cause the least amount of disruption. It could be that they haven't got to Canada East yet. Netherlands might be slow because everyone piled onto it. :P

@Bob

Yes, but there is nothing you or I can do. :)

The issue is with the exit nodes, so staff have to investigate and fix it. FYI, Cryptofree is working perfectly well, which points to an issue specific to the main nodes.

Go to advanced search

Nothing to display.
