I have a Actiontec C1000A router and CenturyLink service. This is model is not listed under the step through setup guides for Actiontec here: https://store.opendns.com/setup/router/Actiontec but everything looks basically the same as the instructions for the Q1000. I follow each step but when I go to save my settings all my changes get erased (the DNS type goes back to dynamic DNS and the OpenDNS 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 nameservers get erased from the static DNS fields and are replaced by Centurylinks). It appears that I can't use a static DNS.
I called CenturyLink and they could not provide me with help so they gave me a Actiontec number to call. The Actiontec serviceman told me that it is not possible to use OpenDNS with CenturyLink. While I don't believe this is true for everyone I'm certainly having a rough go at it. Is there something else I can try? I really want the OpenDNS service at the router level.
