    Yes, this question has been asked quite often and answered.  Websites are not blocked, but domains.

    You configure another (non-OpenDNS) DNS service on that device.

    "I've tryed changing the Internet Protoco Version 4 thing to change my dns"

    Yes, this was the right approach.

    "but it dosent work."

    What and how did you test this?

    Copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to here when you changed the DNS settings on the computer:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 208.67.220.220
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.
    netsh interface ipv4 show config

    I'm just a regular OpenDNS user.

    Yes, I want to see this "network stuff".  And no, these commands do not require elevated rights.

    I'm afraid you cannot be helped in the community forum.  Open a support ticket with OpenDNS, "Submit a request" above.

    You forgot to post the output of the last command, so I do not see your IPv4 settings on this PC.

    Normally you don't use OpenDNS on this computer, but Comcast's DNSv6 service:

    Server: cdns01.comcast.net
    Address: 2001:558:feed::1

    However, it can happen that also IPv4 is being used for DNS queries.  In this case you will be using OpenDNS.  You had to review your IPv4 settings for DNS.

    Also, your public IPv4 address is not registered at https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/ and therefore your dashboard settings do not take effect, but you are using the OpenDNS defaults with not much blocking.

    "Is there a possible way to make a website unblocked on a specific device"

    As you are not really using OpenDNS, this blocking must be from something else, not from OpenDNS.

    If you don't need more assistance and answers from me, you don't need to post further command outputs.

    So does this mean I'm unable to configure another DNS service?

    No, this is not what it means.  You didn't want to use OpenDNS on this device to prevent from blocking, and you don't use it.  So all is good.  As can be seen, you are using Comcast's DNSv6 service, not OpenDNS' service.  And even if you would use OpenDNS, your dashboard settings do not take effect, because you did not register your IP address information at your dashboard.
