    No.  And you don't install OpenDNS on routers.  You just configure the OpenDNS resolver addresses.

    There is a general instruction for any type of router allowing to configure static DNS resolver addresses:

    Nice answer rotoblitz and thanks for the detailed info....... I also have a Ubee modem/router. Its a DDW365, service with TWC. 50M down, 5up. There is no way that I can see to use opendns with Ubee modem/routers because those settings are LOCKED OUT as being accessible. I cannot even find a way to put this modem in bridge mode so that I can edit settings with another connected router. If anyone out there has a Ubee modem and can figure this out I would really appreciate the info. Thanks.

    Did anyone ever find a solution to this? we only have one router -- UBEE DDW 3201B from Time Warner and cannot figure out how to use OpenDNS or get to any place to update DNS settings on the router's IP address.

    If there is no place to configure static DNS server addresses, then you cannot configure it.  So easy!

    You'll have to configure OpenDNS on the end user devices then: https://store.opendns.com/setup/computer

    I was unable to find a manual for the UBEE DDW 3201B the Time Warner Cable forum post here http://forums.timewarnercable.com/t5/Home-Networking/No-manual-for-Ubee-DVW3201B/td-p/8969 sends you to the manual http://www.timewarnercable.com/content/dam/residential/pdfs/support/WirelessRouters/Ubee_DVW3201B_v9.8.3012_D1_Subscriber_Guide_Final.pdf.  Based on this manual it doesn't look like you can change DNS settings on the Ubee routers issued by Time Warner Cable but you can contact them to confirm this information since they may have loaded their own, proprietary firmware on the device. Otherwise, you will need to consult your manual or contact the manufacturer for detailed instructions on updating the DNS settings on that particular device.

    Alternatively, you can always change the DNS settings on your computer instead (see https://store.opendns.com/setup/computer/). You will get the same benefits, and if you have a small number of computers on your network, it's relatively easy. In some cases, users have found success in configuring both their router and computers.

    Another option would be to install a third-party router, such as one you would buy at a store, in between the ISP's router and the rest of the devices on your network. You can then configure OpenDNS on that device and it will distribute the DNS settings to the devices on your network.
