I have uVerse internet service delivered to my home via the motorola NVG589 on default settings.
Today, only my home phone service works. TV and internet do not work. I investigated the issue and found that the residential gateway is not giving valid DNS replies: every request returns the IP address of the RG.
I was motivated to post here upon further investigation. Attempts to use DNS services with Google and OpenDNS return the RG IP address, too. I can ping the outside world just fine using IP addresses I get from other services. I can use a VPN to wrap my DNS queries just fine.
Why does "dig @18.104.22.168 google.com" on my linux box return the IP address of my RG as if it had been supplied by Google's DNS server?
Is my NVG589 hjacking my DNS requests? Has uVerse told my RG to essentially engage in MiM attacks on my browsing?
