    Is it this?  https://on.google.com/hub/

    Well, the question is not "Does opendns work with onhub?", but "Can DNS server addresses be configured on OnHub?".  As you can see, this is not really related to OpenDNS, but could apply for any 3rd party DNS service.  So the OpenDNS forum is the wrong place to ask.

    Here you go: https://on.google.com/hub/support/
    and http://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-9_TGR1900.html

    Matt, I should have asked if the DNS server address can be configured on OnHub like Rrotblitz mentioned in his post. I have an ATT router and DNS server settings cant be changed. I found a page on the opendns site a long time ago and it had information on which routers work with opendns (able to change dns server settings)

    There are always new routers coming up, and it's hard if not impossible to keep up with the additions and changes.

    OpenDNS provide two lists with router instructions.  They do not include all routers of the world, of course.  The TP-Link (or ASUS) OnHub router doesn't seem to be part of the lists and probably will never.

    Also, why would Google want to configure their service with an alternative DNS service?  They have their own Google DNS which is most likely used with OnHub too.

    Thanks for the info. I want to be able to filter content at the router level. Windows parental control isn't very good and i have heard that opendns is pretty good.

    It seems OnHub was not the right decision for your purpose then unless you can use also another router (or another firmware on this router) for this internet service.

    Beside another router or firmware your options are to either configure OpenDNS on the end user devices, or to add another router between the Google device and your end user devices, or to run an own internal DNS server (and possibly DHCP server).
