Free Wifi on Chiltern Railways and Dropbox

The free Wifi on Chiltern Railways annoyingly uses opendns.com for its DNS. This breaks dropbox with a rather confusing error

Unable to make a secure connection to the Dropbox servers because your computer's date and time settings are incorrect. Please correct your computer's date and time to allow a connection to Dropbox

The fix is to change the DNS servers after connecting to something else. I've just the google DNS servers at 8.8.8.8

The DNS servers can only be changed after connecting since DNS redirection is used for presenting the WIFI sign in page.
