    so i believe i know whats happening on my end...my son (14) figured out how to bypass openDNS by using VPN software like AVAST and betternet.  ive removed the betternet chrome extension and deleted avast from his laptop.  im not sure how to keep him from getting betternet, i dont think extensions in chrome require admin rights to install...

    This is the DNS service you're using, clearly not OpenDNS.

    Server: UnKnown
    Address: fd14:231d:16fe:0:9221:6ff:fe82:7e20

    Configure your IPv6 settings with the following DNSv6 resolver addresses:
    ::ffff:d043:dedc  and  ::ffff:d043:dcde

     

    @jcs1970

    You can block the domains where this software can be downloaded from.

    Well the tutorial doesn’t make it very clear on the website as it doesn’t state anything about IPv6 only IPv4.

    Also it will work if I reboot my Pc but then could be ten to fifteen minutes and it just loses the connection which doesn’t come back.

    OpenDNS seem to falsely assume that people do not have IPv6 connectivity.  :(
    Therefore they did not prepare to get IPv6 even mentioned or instructed.  I'm doing this job now, as you can see...

    "ten to fifteen minutes and it just loses the connection which doesn’t come back."

    That would be a totally different problem, unrelated to OpenDNS.  A DNS service has no control over your internet connection.  I'm not going to dive deeper into this, because I'm not so happy that you hi-jacked jcs1970's thread.  It's hard to manage different issues in just one thread.  You better opened your own thread if it is OpenDNS related.

    I see this thread is old, but I'm having the same exact issue.  I have 1 desktop PC on ethernet, 1 laptop on wifi, and 3 or 4 mobile devices all grabbing the same IP that filters my Web Content Filtering setting, but a new laptop will not grab the same IP, and allow my daughter to access YouTube.  When I visit welcome.opendns.com, it shows that I'm *NOT* connected to OpenDNS.  Below is the diagnostics for my daughter's school-provided laptop:
