BEFSX41 – The DNS proxy works well

Linksys BEFSX41Good news: Even if this is not plainly written in the documentation of this fine little Ethernet router from Linksys, the BEFSX41 is fully able to operate as a DNS proxy. You just have to:

  • Use DHCP on the WAN side (on the side of your Internet Service Provider).
  • Configure your machines (Windows, Linux, MacOs) to use the address of the BEFSX41 as a DNS server.

It merely works (confirmed with firmware 1.45.3, Sep 26 2003).
