    You forgot to fill DNS 3 with one of 208.67.222.220 or 208.67.220.222.

    OK,  Thank you very much!  I will give that a try.

    Thank you very much!  Entering the DNS server IP in the 3rd DNS worked!   I guess I do not understand why it was needed the 3rd one to work, but I am very happy that you took the time to answer this problem.  Cheers!  :)

    Because if you do not fill all DNS fields with OpenDNS resolver addresses, the unused one will pick your ISP's DNS server address, and therefore you don't use OpenDNS reliably, but randomly only.

    It looks like Linksys "fixed" this "issue"...  I'm new to OpenDNS, and this is a new router...  Looks like it's using the router IP for the primary DNS server...  

    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
                                                     208.67.222.222
                                                     208.67.220.220
                                                     208.67.220.220

    I can't tell if you're saying that you're having a problem, or merely posting some sort of "me too" post on a thread has been dormant for 9 months.

    I also can't tell where in your routers settings those DNS servers are listed. Is that in the DHCP section for DNS settings that are given to clients, or is it in the network settings for the router itself?

    Hi

    I have a new router Linksys AC1200+ and I can't get DNS to block/filter websites like I used to be able to with my old Belkin router. I have a free account with OpenDNS, what do I need to do extra with the Linksys AC1200 in order for OpenDNS to work? I read the replies above but can't find where I can put those DNS in. Please advise.
