    I'm not aware of a similar service like DNS-O-Matic being able to update OpenDNS. Your best bet is to flash the router with an alternative firmware.

    Thank You Rob. I'll search for an alternative firmware.

    I haven't used OpenDNS in a while. Didn't it use to support updates from dyndns.org? Why only support DNS-O-Matic? My router a fairly new Cisco/Linksys EA4500 only uses DynDNS.org or TZO. I don't want to run a computer client to update dynamic IP changes.

    No it did not really.  However, there was a way by using the combination of DNS Allocator and DNS-O-Matic.  But this was a gap and has been fixed.

    You got the wrong model.  Broadcom based Cisco/Linksys routers can be flashed with alternative firmware.  Yours cannot.  :(
