A friend bought this router (Netgear R7000) and did not have good luck with it, so he sent it to me.
I want to change the DNS server settings so it uses the automatic server IP from my Cox host.
Run NetGear Genie, try to change parental controls:
It asks for my OpenDNS user/pw. I used my OpenDNS credentials, popup says router not registered to this account.
I try my friends OpenDNS user/pw, router not regiistered there.
I don't WANT the "features" of OPENDNS, so I put in a request an hour or two again, nothing..
My experience so far: DO NOT USE PARENTAL CONTROLS AND FORGET ABOUT OPENDNS.
If I can't get this resolved, the router goes back to Amazon as "not working"
