    "I have input the DNSServer addresses"

    Where was this?  On the Apple TimeCapsule?

    If so, copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to there:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 208.67.220.220
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.

    Else configure the OpenDNS resolver addresses on the Apple TimeCapsule first.

    Thank you for the assistance.  Below is my response to your questions and the commands you needed me to run.

     

    I did go back through the airport time capsule setup instructions again.  

    I opened the AirPort Utility, and on the internet tab, and on (2) blank lines by the label DNS Servers:.....   I've entered the 208.67.222.222 on the first line and 208.67.222.220 on the 2nd...and saved settings and flushed cache.  I've also tried the 208.67.222.123/208.67.220.123.  No success with either pair of numbers.

    Below is the plain text you requested when I ran the diagnostic commands on the mac terminal:

    Your router behind 192.168.1.254 is unimpressed about the configuration work you did.  You may want to visit the support site for your router.  Not being able to configure DNS servers or this not taking effect is unrelated to OpenDNS, but a pure router issue.  You would have the same problem with any other DNS service you would want to use.

    Ok.  Before I contacted you I spent multiple phone calls with AT&T and with Apple.  AT&T configured it.  

    Will you simply point me to the best source to seek help since your comment of being unimpressed gets me nowhere.  I do not understand what 'support site' to visit for help with the router.  I've read everything published by OpenDNS and it hasn't helped me yet.  Please tell me if I should call AT&T or if Apple would be better.

    Sure, I meant an Apple related support site with "the support site for your router".  In case you got this Apple device from your ISP, call them.  Again, your problem is unrelated to OpenDNS.
