    What do Motorola support say? Here are the OpenDNS experts, the Motorola experts are somewhere else. :(

    Whatever, if you find DNS server address fields on this device, fill them with the following IP addresses, as many as it has:
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
    208.67.222.220
    208.67.220.222

    If it doesn't have DNS server address fields, then you cannot configure OpenDNS on it. You can configure OpenDNS on your end devices though.

    Due to the firmware restrictions that AT&T and 2Wire place upon UVERSE-enabled devices, it is not possible to change the DNS settings on these devices. If you would like to use our services on a UVERSE-enabled connection then please configure your computers individually or configure a router that connects your UVERSE device and computers.

    We have instructions for configuring computers and applicable routers here:

    OpenDNS Basic/VIP: <https://store.opendns.com/setup/>
    OpenDNS FamilyShield: <https://store.opendns.com/familyshield/setup/>

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.

    I am running an apple airport in bridge mode in front of my u-verse modem/router and I was able to make opendns work with U-verse.  I give all the details on my blog: http://johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-setup-opendns-with-uverse-apple-airport.html

    I have setup Open DNS on my Apple Desktop,iPhone, and iPad, but i have uVerse. They would do well to support OpenDNS at ATT because it doubled the speed of my Uverse internet access, which is nearly as fast as The ATT salesmen said it would be, when they signed me up haha. My question is, is there an advantage to adding another router device between my server and the 2Wire router that ATT installed for Uverse? I have another router here and so far Open DNS settings have been a breeze for me and with my ADHD that NEVER happens, until now!

    Because you cannot configure OpenDNs on the 2Wire device, you could configure it on the other router, thus saving you to configure it on each single end user device.

    Does the Uverse router restriction still exist?
