with dnsmasq (the stock openwrt dns server) that would be the
[...] Thus --address=/#/18.104.22.168 will always return 22.214.171.124 for any
query not answered from /etc/hosts or DHCP and not sent to an upstream
nameserver by a more specific --server directive.
so, try appending the following line to /etc/dnsmasq.conf and restart
# echo "address=/#/126.96.36.199/" >> /etc/dnsmasq.conf
# /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart
