I recently discovered this Router Checker by F-Secure Labs and was wondering how well it tests? It seems that they only check for DNS Hijacking.

I tested it myself and have a clean slate but wanted to see what the community thinks about it?

Quote : " The F-Secure Router Checker does not really check routers, it simply reports on a DNS server. All the other DNS server checkers report on multiple detected DNS servers, F-Secure only reports on one. The company says their goal is to insure that your router is using an "authorized DNS server" but there is no such thing and they don't define it. "
