    You do not use OpenDNS Home, because as a busniness you are not licensed for it.
    Instead you use https://umbrella.cisco.com/products/packages

    Regardless, currently you use your ISP's gstelecom.com DNS service, because the Umbrella (= OpenDNS) resolver addresses are not configured at least on the device behind 192.168.10.1 or later.  This is where you must configure the resolver addresses, ideally on the WAN facing side, i.e. as forwarder addresses.
