I've been using OpenDNS for a few years now and all was working fine. However, the main computer that was providing IP address updates to OpenDNS was XP so I replaced it with a Win7 machine. A few weeks later I realized this broke my OpenDNS rules. Long story short something isn't working right and I'm not sure where to find the fix.
Here's my configuration.
DSL ISP Modem/Router (adult network) ---> feeds to a 2nd router (kids network)
The plan is straight forward. The adults router has a couple of wired (xbox) and wireless (phones, tablet, laptops) configured on it. The kids router has a wired computer connected and wireless enabled for phone and two tablets.
I only want OpenDNS to block items browsed from the kids router but since I'm on DSL I need to use the OpenDNS Updater tool. Once I updated OpenDNS is blocking ALL the devices in the house, even those on the adult modem/router. This wasn't happening previously.
For my configuration I'm using the ISP provided DNS on the Adult network and OpenDNS on Kids network. The ISP modem/router feeds the Kids router via Port 4 to the internet port on the Linksys router.
What am I doing wrong or what configuration should I be using to only have the Kids network be blocked?
