Followed instructions from https://www.acevpn.com/knowledge-base/configure-dns-to-unblock-tv-channels-on-ddwrt-router/

If I visit http://check.acevpn.com/ it says that "Unblock TV / Smart DNS is not enabled on your device". Made sure VPN is OFF & have correct Smart DNS server address in DNSMasq Options text box.
Both DNSMasq and Local DNS options are enabled in DD-WRT. My correct IP address is also entered in the Unblock TV Authorized IP tab area.

No success connecting from Canada. Not sure what else to try to make this work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is not picking up dns. Can you post (or email) screen shot of your dns settings?

Sent an email with a screenshot of my DD-WRT DNS settings to [email protected]. Worth mentioning also that my DD-WRT router is working behind my ISP router. Not sure if this would make a difference. Thanks for your help. Marc

I suspected my ISP modem/router was forcing my DD-WRT router to use its own DNS servers so I added some commands to intercept the DNS queries and redirect them to use the appropriate unblock TV/smart DNS servers; i.e.

under DD-WRT... Administration>Firewall Command Box

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to $(nvram get lan_ipaddr)
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -p tcp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to $(nvram get lan_ipaddr)

Thanks for all your help!
