    OpenDNS blocks domains, but you don't send your DNS traffic to OpenDNS.  You have configured 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, but you're actually using

    Server: UnKnown
    Address: fe80::1

    Pretty different, what?  You must configure ::ffff:d043:dedc and ::ffff:d043:dcde as DNSv6 server addresses in the IPv6 properties of your computer (or router?) too.

    So i should also configure ipv6.. But I'm using IPV4. Sorry I'm not realy that techy. But i'll follow your advice. I'll change ipv6 address. Thanks for the response

    You are using BOTH IPv6 and IPv4. If you want OpenDNS to work properly and consistently for you that means configuring things so that all of your DNS traffic reachess OpenDNS, which is what rotblitz suggestions accomplish. Otherwise your choice is to disable IPv6 or to live with inconsistent and unreliable blocking by OpenDNS.

    Something redirects your DNS traffic to another DNS service, most likely your ISP. Call your ISP to opt out from this redirection.

    You ask that you want to opt out from their DNS redirection because you want to use a 3rd party DNS service.

    Can I check myself through any command if my ISP is performing any DNS redirection or can I stop it myself? @rotblitz

    For some reason even disabling ipv6 didn't work so I re enabled ipv6 and put in the provided DNS ipv6 servers and VIOLA! Thank you so much!
