    Hi,

     

    While we do offer general instructions for most popular routers on our site (www.opendns.com/setupguide), we do not have the resources to list each single make and model of router on the market, so you may need to consult your router's user manual. Basically, you just need to access the router’s configuration page and input our DNS numbers. If that router was supplied to you by your ISP you will need to contact them for instructions on updating the DNS settings, as they may have loaded their own, proprietary firmware on the device. Otherwise, you will need to consult your manual or contact the manufacturer for detailed instructions on updating the DNS settings on that particular device.

    Alternatively, you can always change the DNS settings on your computer instead (see https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/sections/206253647). You will get the same benefits, and if you have a small number of computers on your network, it's relatively easy. In some cases, users have found success in configuring both their router and computers.

     

    Regards,

    How can you ask for configuration help for a device where you cannot configure DNS server addresses?

    See also https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/228006547

    But well, you configure OpenDNS on the end user devices instead.

    Ok thanks. So after configuring the DNS on my Xbox one when I log into opendns then the logs would be reflecting activity on the device itself right?

    Yes, your dashboard stats would reflect the DNS activity of all the devices in your network which are configured to use OpenDNS.  If the Xbox is the only device configured for OpenDNS use, then the stats and logs would be related to DNS activity on this device only.
