Do you have an issue where your Wi-Fi router refuses to connect to your iPhone or other device and you cannot figure out why?
The Wi-Fi router settings are set for Port Forwarding and Secure Socket Layer (HSLS). So why is the the network block encrypting DNS traffic? It’s probably a private address masking (PAAS), which is a commonly used type of spoofing. It allows a user that knows they are on a secure Wi-Fi network, to use that network instead of the public Wi-Fi network. In short, it is spoofing your address in order to gain illegal access to online services or resources.
Why is the network blocking encrypted DNS traffic? Some people say that it is because they don’t want their employees or customers reading their private information on their computer. However, I have heard other explanations for this kind of behavior. Maybe the employee downloaded a virus that was secretly installed on the computer system and made the network behave in this manner. Perhaps the hacker sent a spoofing email to lure the user into revealing their private information.
Regardless of the reason, the fact remains that this is not how Wi-Fi was meant to be used. Wi-Fi was designed to allow two wireless networks to connect to each other without broadcasting their private information. This is what separates it from your cell phone’s data plan which is only designated for cellular phones. Bluetooth devices are also another example of communicating over a wireless network without broadcasting your personal information.
So what can you do now?
To restore your secure Wi-Fi connection follow the simple steps outlined in the privacy network guide. First, reboot the system. Next, load the device manager by clicking Start,Run and typing in “msconfig” in the field text box. Finally, click the “scan” tab and clear the cache and cookies on the network.
If your PC’s network is not responding you probably have one of two problems. The first problem is hardware-related. You will need to replace your wireless router with a compatible model. If this does not work your software causing the issue probably has been corrupted. To fix this, download Spyware Doctor from the reputable company below and run the software.
Before proceeding let me make sure your PC is not infected with malware or any other harmful programs. Uninstall all unnecessary software, shut down all unnecessary windows and close all programs that you are not using. Then download and install Spyware Doctor. Let the software run through its scan and find any corrupted or infected files that may be preventing your network from connecting. Once the software finds them it will remove the corrupted files.
Now you need to restart your network after uninstalling the program and replacing the damaged ones. This will cause the network to catch up which should happen within just a few minutes. If you continue to experience problems, follow the above steps again but this time use the network you were working with before the encrypted dns issue. If this does not work you will need to contact your ISP and explain your problem. They will likely have no option but to change the settings within the router to allow you access.
If your network is blocking the encrypted DNS traffic, you will not be able to connect to the internet. Changing the MAC address is the best solution to the problem. You can purchase a software program that will make changing the MAC address fairly easy. Keep in mind, however, that changing the MAC address can also disrupt your wireless connection.
Another solution that is often overlooked is changing the password of your network. Many network administrators are more worried about their security then the security of their users. A good practice is changing your password on a regular basis. Never use the same password for different services or websites. It only takes a couple of seconds and will save you a lot of grief down the road.
The software programs that you can use to break into the Network Monitor settings of your private network are also very simple to use. Some are better than others. For instance, a program like Spyware Doctor will actually block your network from loading entirely. This means you can’t access the internet at all.
If you’re still having trouble figuring out why your network is blocking encrypted DNS traffic and the options you have available to fix the problem, contact your ISP. They usually have customer service experts who can explain the situation to you in full detail. However, in my experience, it’s usually an internal problem within your own system. Sometimes there is an issue with one of the software applications on your computer that’s causing the problem.
