    The first thing: Stop using LPC and OpenDNS Home in parallel.  These services are incompatible, and you always will get inconsistent results.

    Stopping OpenDNS Home:

    For using LPC, follow only https://kb.netgear.com/25687/
    Do not do anything else.

    Thanks for the reply.  I guess I should have been more clear - I am not attempting to use LPC and OpenDNS in parallel.  I was attempting to use one or the other.  I cannot get LPC to work (on its own).  Netgear.OpenDNS no longer works since updating to the newest version of Genie.  So I am left without any ability to filter using either LPC  xor  Netgear.OpenDNS.

    Given the information available it appears Netgear is encouraging clients to move away from Netgear.OpenDNS to LPC.  There a number of feature differences between the two and I thought to give LPC a try.

    However, in attempting to configure for LPC, I cannot get it to work because of the warning message about not having a suitable router driver.  The drivers were updated but accessing LPC was still not possible.  The most that can be done is access a Netgear website providing general information about LPC.

    Given the above, I am left with re-attempting to get Netgear.OpenDNS working again.  For that I need to have the DNS settings for Netgear.OpenDNS.  I can locate the DNS settings for OpenDNS (which does work) but I cannot find the DNS settings for Netgear.OpenDNS.  Would you happen to know what Netgear.OpenDNS settings are? 

    Thanks

    Similar or identical problems with LPC have been reported here recently, that it doesn't work anymore since the last updates.  I have not seen a solution yet.  Your best bet is to raise a support ticket, "Submit a request" above.

    Examples:

    Alternatively use OpenDNS Home, not LPC.
