I have a Windows 10 pro laptop that is picking up our Avaya voicemail server as the DHCP server and Gateway address. I also see a unknown DNS server address 208.67.222.220 and 208.67.222.220.  I was thinking virus.. but this laptop is right out the box.   I am still able to get onto the internet with these IP's.   Any thoughts?

Are you sure your Avaya voicemail server is not setup as a DHCP server?  Does it do more than just voice mail?  Could it be a VOIP server also?

The address 208.67.222.220 is part of a block assigned to OpenDNS.

It shouldn't be... and wouldn't all my workstations be getting ip's from it?   It's suppose to just be a voicemail server.

And the Voicemail server is a UNIX box.

It's worth checking. If two DHCP servers are running it is likely that either could be used since both would send out DHCP offer packets and the DHCP server that is used would depend which one's packet arrives first.
