    No, you cannot run OpenDNS on any router in the world.  OpenDNS runs in the cloud, not on a router or computer.  You can just configure the OpenDNS resolver addresses on devices, so that your DNS queries are sent to OpenDNS if the device allows to enter static DNS resolver addresses.

    According to your user manual http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/video/at_home/Cable_Modems/3000_Series/4030802_C.pdf it doesn't look like you can configure anything on the Cisco DPC3010.  This device is set and forget.  So, forget it.....

    I have a Cisco DPC3010 cable modem hooked up to a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. My Linksys wireless router is configured to access the OpenDNS addresses. When I go to the welcome test page (http://welcome.opendns.com), I get the "checkmark" indication that OpenDNS is working. I've set up my filters to stop port. But when I go to a port page to test it, my computer gets free access to the porn. I downloaded the OpenDNS Updater program, and ran it on my PC. Any suggestions to get filtering to work?

    I got it to work. I don't know how. Perhaps the OpenDNS filters just took longer than the usual 3 minutes to take effect. All seems to be working now.

    You most likely forgot to flush your caches after the settings change which presented stuff stored locally.
