    First of all, you cannot use Netgear LPC and any other OpenDNS service in parallel.  These are incompatible.

    If you copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to here, I may be able to see what's going on:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.

    And your ticket will be answered when the ticket is due in their queue.

    Your router does not forward your DNS traffic to OpenDNS, but to another DNS service (Chicago scaleengine.net), probably your ISP.  It looks like this router simply ignores your configuration.  You had to refer to your router supplier, i.e. Netgear.

    I do not think that OpenDNS can help you with this.  You don't have to wait for a response to your ticket.

    For the time being you can configure the OpenDNS resolver addresses on your end user devices.
