Netgear C6300 and OpenDNS not blocking anything

    You have done nearly everything wrong.  :(

    As I can see, you are trying to use Netgear LPC and OpenDNS Home at the same time.  These two services are incompatible.  You can use either the one or the other.  Else the results are inconsistent and random, as you have experienced.

    Assumed you want to use Netgear LPC:

    Strictly follow only these instructions: - not any others and nothing additional!

    Also, ping results are absolutely irrelevant, for several reasons.  You can ping even if a domain is being blocked by OpenDNS.  You will be pinging an OpenDNS address then.  Use only DNS tools like nslookup, dig or host to work DNS troubles, not ping.
