    This is the DNS service you're currently using:

    Server:  mercury.delhitel.net
    Address:  204.14.56.2

    Clearly not OpenDNS!  You either must configure OpenDNS on the router and optain the network settings on the computer automatically via DHCP from the router, or you must configure the computer with OpenDNS.

    Yes, this looks fine, but your router or your computer is unimpressed about your configuration exercise, and you use

    Server:  mercury.delhitel.net
    Address:  204.14.56.2

    instead of 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.  What is the complete output of this command?

    netsh interface ipv4 show config

    Yes, I see.

    Configuration for interface "Ethernet"
        Statically Configured DNS Servers:    204.14.56.2
                                                              204.14.56.3

    As I indicated above already, change this to 192.168.2.1 as the only one DNS server address in the IPv4 network properties of your computer, so that the DNS traffic goes to your router's DNS server where OpenDNS is configured.
