    DNS hijacking


    My dns is currently being hijacked.
    When I go to a page that doesn't exist it redirects to weird sites, but its always the same....about 3 pages. How do I fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    If the DNS servers don't offer an "opt out" option, you can try to find some public servers that don't do any redirects. Those servers seem to be getting harder to find all the time, though.

    Edit: I just wanted to add here that I went through this same thing a short while back and found it interesting that the ISPs want to call these redirects a "service" to you. That's the new thing in marketing efforts these days. Anything that users consider an annoyance, they like to call it a service, and it's all for your benefit.
