Disabling OpenDNS on an iPod Touch
Your iPod Touch normally uses the domain name system server provided by your wireless router or Internet service provider when you connect to the Web over Wi-Fi, but you can also configure a custom DNS server. DNS service providers such as OpenDNS advertise increased speed and other features like malware filtering and parental controls. If you have enabled OpenDNS on your iPod Touch, you can disable it by editing your Wi-Fi settings.
Tap the “Settings” icon on the home screen of your iPod Touch.

- You can also tap “Forget This Network” on the Wi-Fi network settings screen and then reconnect to the Wi-Fi network. Your iPod Touch will automatically detect the appropriate DNS server when it reconnects.
- If you have set the DNS settings on your iPod Touch to automatic but you are still connecting via OpenDNS, your wireless router is configured to use OpenDNS. You can disable OpenDNS by logging into the wireless router and changing its DNS server or specifying another provider’s DNS server in the Wi-Fi settings on your iPod Touch.
