Note: This guide is for the OpenDNS configuration of NETGEAR routers. If you are already using the Parental Controls integration that is available with certain NETGEAR routers following the directions in this guide will toggle the Parental Controls from ENABLED to DISABLED.
If you are looking to use NETGEAR Live Parental Controls, please go through the automatic registration process in the Parental Controls tab on the NETGEAR genie app at http://netgear.com/home/discover/apps/genie.aspx rather than following the directions in this article.
1. Log into the router configuration page at http://routerlogin.net
2. Click on the Internet Link along the left hand side
3. Find the setting for Domain Name Server (DNS) Addresses
Enter the following three DNS IPs (first two if there are only two spaces). All DNS spaces must be filled: 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, and 184.108.40.206. After this has been done click the Apply button.
