I have had Fios for a few years now, and I want to start using OpenDNS for my house. I followed the instructions here and set up the OpenDNS DNS servers on the router. I have all of my machines set to get their ip addresses automatically and when I do an ipconfig/all I see that they are using the router as the DNS server. So far so good. However, I am fairly certain that I am not actually using OpenDNS. On the OpenDNS Dashboard, I see traffic and a whole list of domains, but when I try to browse some I cannot get to the website, and I cannot ping the site. The dashboard states that the domain resolved normally, but again, I cannot ping it from my pc. I find this very odd. If I sent OpenDNS as my DNS servers directly on my pc, I still cannot ping at least one website or browse to it. I was able to browse to this site as of yesterday. I know the site is up so that is not the issue.
Any help would be appreciated.
